They stood together on the roof of one of his favorite buildings. Looking out, you could see all of downtown. And looking up, you could see the moon.
She was the type of chick to catch people's eye. Long dark waves and a porcelain face with big expressive eyes that held many a secret. He was the type of man to catch people's attention, as well. He was warm and inviting. His wild hair covered one of his deep blue eyes. His tanned skin seemed to gleam under the streetlights as they had made their way to the building. She had watched the way people looked at him. And when he flashed that smile, it was like watching the sun break through dark clouds. He was good like that. She tended to be more reserved as of late. They were opposites these days. Whereas she was the moon, he was the sun. Both were comforting and served purposes.
She sat down on the ledge of the building and lit a cigarette, raising her eyes to him in an almost apologetic manner. "Only when I'm really stressed do I smoke" she told him. He had smiled and lit his own cigarette off of the glowing end of hers. She watched his face as he inhaled and felt that strange fluttering in her stomach.
"I hate that you do this to me" she said, looking back to the streets below. He crouched beside her and she could feel him looking at her. "Elaborate?" he asked. A warm breeze blew his hair over his eyes and he shook his head to see the pale woman beside him. She took another drag and looked at him. "I'm not sure how to explain it. You scare me, and I'm not easily frightened..." He laughed "Well, I knew that. I'm not scary!" He paused and raised an eyebrow. "Am I?" She smiled. "No. I suppose it's just that I'm drawn to you. I feel for you and the fact that I like you as much as I do... the fact that I allow myself to be vulnerable with you.... it frightens me, Alvaro." He bit his lip as she said his name. She looked him straight in the eyes and whispered "I'm afraid to fall." He took another drag on his cigarette and blew the sweet smoke in her face. "So don't." She raised an eyebrow. He stood and got off the ledge. He stood behind her as they looked out over the city. One of his strong arms encircled her waist, the other crossed over her chest as he leaned down and whispered. "Don't fall then. Fly with me. I'll teach you how." She leaned into him, feeling his warmth encircle her. She turned on the ledge so she was facing him. He stood between her legs. She flicked her cigarette butt down into the streets, watching it fall and hit the ground, the embers scattering and dying out. Then she turned and looked up at the handsome man in front of her. His deep blue eyes looked deeply into her hazel ones and she said "I trust you" A grin broke out on his lips and he leaned down to kiss her jawline. "Good." She trembled slightly as his lips touched her skin and she found her hand sliding over his chest. It stopped just over his heart, and she felt the strong and steady beat under her palm. She smiled. "I love you" she said, using her legs to bring him closer to her. The worry seemed to melt away from her as she moved close to him. "I love you too!" he said, kissing her forehead. And she believed him.
