Nothing 9

You were there, standing and waiting for me, like a groom waiting for his bride. Stupid tradition. I’ve never seen a good example of a marriage, marriage seems horrible, but I would gladly spend the rest of my life with you. We had our eyes on each other, we always did, that is why I…

HC Reflection
