Deepest Love

MD42

She looked. And he looked back. She loved. And he loved back. It didn’t matter that she lived beneath the seas, and he beside them. Love knows no boundaries. And so she goes to him, with joy, and with the jewels and regal bearing befitting a princess from the deep. Their time together will be counted in precious moments. Always secret. Always sweet. It will have to do.
