Prologue to love unedited….
He looked at her as she walked back into his world…..he looked at her with a love that seemed like it had been alive for a thousand years…. she glided towards him not even noticing the hundreds of people that stood in between their gaze in his parents house, the people that had always stood in between their story…the pages were left blank because of them……both of them frozen in the moment….although so much time had passed…..the story was still alive…..and the words were appearing on the pages like fireworks in the dark sky with every step she took towards him….pages that had been left blank because of the shame and guilt associated with loving someone you weren’t supposed to….she came closer…it was almost as she was walking down the aisle toward her destiny…blind faith leading her into his embrace…..time stood still , frozen in their gaze and between their eyes sharing with each other a story that only their hearts knew….and within those 5 minutes he revealed in his tell-tale gleaming blue eyes what years and distance had been hiding…what she had longed to hear him say so many years before….before he embarked on a journey that lead him anywhere but home…..it had been six years since he had seen her…… She was pretty still, body fuller through maturity and years of childbearing …..with dark brown hair and soft green eyes, and she moved so gracefully towards him that it almost seemed as though she were gliding. In that moment he knew, she knew he thought…his gaze told her the secret….her gaze said it back…..the secret that he was both ashamed and both proud of ……he was a stoic man of honor and respect and stood proud of the fact that he hadn’t settled into a life like everyone else….like she had….she always had a sadness about her that her words never spoke of….that no one else but him always picked up on…her actions were always the right ones, the ones deemed by society that proved her to be a happily married woman….but her eyes said it all…..however it was this woman, this undiscovered love …..what his soul both ran from and toward…..that he realized through all the years and failed relationships he could never find in another woman….. He’d seen and been with so many beautiful women before, though, women who caught his eye, but to his mind, they usually lacked the traits he found most desirable. Traits that unite you for a lifetime……traits that enable you to not settle….like he himself possessed intelligence, confidence, strength of spirit, passion, traits that inspired others to greatness, traits he aspired to..however these traits that also kept them apart….they were both proud and honorable , and this love story that was written in that gaze was a story that could only stand the test of faith and belief and gods divine intervention.
