Writer Notes: Little scene here. I have had these pictures for a while and I love them. They’ve all been rotating as my desktop background.

“Marry me, Tatiana. Marry me.”
She fell to the ground first, letting the waves roll softly around her. Not wanting to be a dark shadow lingering over her, Vaiden sank into the sand as well, but he wasn’t as pleased to get his clothes soaking wet.
They both were very silent in their own thoughts overlooking the water. It was a beautiful night, stars glistening, the ocean was very quiet, except those few little soft crashes of the waves hitting land, and Vaiden found it surprising for them to be the only out here this night.
Vaiden’s thoughts portrayed aggravation in why he put up with this Human. He’d put up with many in his life, but for some reason, he felt even more tiresome with this one. There were many questions to be answered, but very few answers to say. Vaiden wanted to ask a certain question, but now was not the time.
She finally turned to look at him. He could tell by her eyes that something had been haunting her, but little did he care.
“You don’t have to be out here.” She said softly. “I’ll be fine.”
“Wouldn’t be wise to let some wild animal come out and eat you.” Vaiden replied half jokingly. She didn’t laugh so neither did he.
“Vaiden,” she face looked too serious as if she was thinking before she said each word. “What are we going to do now?”
He looked up at the stars glittering the sky. “Just keep going until word finds us.” He answered.
“That’s it?” she questioned. “We just keep running?”
“You’ve evidently have not dealt with a lot of Vampires in your time.” He grumbled.
“No.” she sighed. “I guess, I have not.”
“Do me a favor and don’t worry about these things.” He said. “That’s my job.”
“If I don’t worry about these things, I’ll think about…” she stopped herself in mid-breath. “I don’t want to think about that.”
He side glanced at her. “Think about the ocean then. It’s calm and serene.”
She shook her head.
“That was Elfish of me, I know.” He found himself chuckle. A small smile formed on her face as well.
“Calm and serene.” She looked up at him, eyes filled with all kinds of sadness; yet, she hadn’t figured it out that there was no comfort to be found in Vaiden.
