“I have never seen a constellation this beautiful.”
“Yeah, in fact, I have never seen any constellation before in my life.”
I never leave my eyes from the full moon in the night sky, but I know that he is smiling beside me.
“Welcome to my world,” he says with his eyes never leave me.
“Your world is breathtaking!” I say with a smile. “I want to stay.”
“Stay as long as you like.”
My smile fades. “I grew up in big cities,” I say lowering my eyelids. “I could only dream this moment.”
“How many cities?”
“Four,” I say with a little regret in my heart for moving so much. “One of them is full of skyscrapers and the rest does not have much.”
“Hmm,” he responds in mumble.
“There was a day I wished the city would just turn off all the lights, shut down all the sounds, and stop every moving thing,” I say opening up my eyes even wider.
“So that everyone can enjoy a clear night sky, even though with only a slight moonlight appears from the back of black clouds.” I shift my body to the right and face him. “Do you want to know my world?”
He nods. “But only for a few second, perhaps.”
“Why?” I frown and hurt a little.
He moves his head a little to catch my eyes. “I only want to peek a little of where you come from. Like you said, it is not as pretty as my world.”
I lay back down. “Yeah, you’re right.”
“When we come back,” he moves closer to me. “Will you stay here with me forever?”
I blink several times. I am in shock but I don’t want to show it. I am happy when he says ‘forever’ but I also want to keep the happiness for myself. “With you and all of this?” as I say pointing to the sky that is full of white dots. “Yes, of course! But with one condition!”
“What is that?”
I smile. “Don’t let anybody else see our world.”
He smiles. “I promise,” he takes my hand. “It is just going to be you and me. Forever.”
