He woke up and it was too darn early…
The alarm kept going off.
It was a gloomy morning, and it looked like it was going to rain.
He looked next to him and there she was, naked, laying on her stomach, with her curly hair all over the place.
As he watched her breathe and sleep so peacefully he could still see the scars on her back from the knife of her previous lover.
He caressed them softly and thought…
“I want to protect her. I could truly love her someday, I want to be the one to heal that heart so that she never feels pain again.”
She woke up, turned and looked at him.
“Good morning!” He said.
“Good morning handsome,” and she smiled.
“Have you been awake this whole time?”
“No, but I did wake up before you and I was just thinking, as I watched you sleep…”
“I was wondering… do you still feel the pain? Do you still remember him?”
She paused and saw it all in her head again, but it no longer moved her.
“I’ll never forget; How can you forget one of the most memorable lessons of your life?
You can’t, the lessons of life are our best teachers.” She smiled and kissed him softly.
In that moment he knew…
He knew that he could truly in deed love her someday, and that she would sincerely love him back and also heal his wounds.
“The broken pair”
