Meet: Erin & Brendon (Part I)

We headed toward the city, as the buildings bowed in reverence to the setting sun. They knelt before the cobalt sky, in awe of such rare beauty. It wasn’t every day that a light like this would shine on them, and she in turn was even more beautiful in their reflection. Her blue was a deeper blue, her warmth grew even stronger. And standing in the face of them, surrounded by a golden light…it was clear that she was glowing from the inside out.

We drove and drove, as he reached for her hand in the middle. And as he did, she spoke quietly of the struggle and the strain of waiting to hear about her residency. He brushed the hair back from her face, took deep breaths with her, and finished her sentences when she just couldn’t find the words. He had been the first person that she called. Stood beside her as they waited in the quiet of not knowing. And he was the one there with her holding her hand, when the wind changed and the amazing news of the nearly impossible came in.

We headed toward the center, as darkness took the place of the setting sun. They knelt before the steps, as he looked on in awe of such rare beauty. It wasn’t every day in his life that a light like this had shined on him, and she in turn was even more beautiful in his reflection. The blue of her eyes was a deeper blue, and with him her warmth grew even stronger. And standing in their presence, surrounded by the last breaths of a golden light…

It was clear that she was glowing from the inside out.
