She was quietly sitting admiring the sunset from her castle, suddenly she heard footsteps approaching from behind with the sound of leaves being crushed.
She glanced to her side, and at that moment the figure finally took a seat next to her. It was someone she knew but hardly recognized, it was her lover’s ghost.
After a few minutes of admiring him she turned her attention back to the sunset.
“Beautiful, isn’t it?” he said.
“Yeah,” she replied in a soft voice.
There they sat in silence until the sun finally set and it was night time.
It was a comfortable silence however; since their souls intertwined, there was always a mutual understanding between them. Some call this understanding “love.”
“Could we ever be together? After the mess we made of everything–of ourselves, can we ever go back to those few moments of pure bliss?” he said.
“No silly, it’s too late for that…” she replied, in a solemn tone.
After a short pause she went on.
“We finally found peace in the distance; my heart could not survive another war with you. But we don’t need to be together, our love is already eternal so we are always together, even when we are apart.”
“I suppose you’re right,” he said as he glanced up at the moon.
“I’m always right,” she quipped with a laugh.
“Wish I saw that sooner,” he said,
“Me too,” She replied,
Then she glanced up at the moon and smiled.
“Maybe we’re together in another universe. In fact, I’m certain of it, and knowing we’re together somewhere in existence is good enough for me,” she said cheerfully.
There was silence.
She looked over awaiting a reply, but just as quickly as he had come, he disappeared.
“Another universe,” she said again, this time sad.
