3. The Portrait
"Portray me", my Evenstar had asked upon hearing of my talent. Pen and paper rejoice as I follow the curves of her hips. Never before have I drawn such beauty as lies before me now in all her nude glory.
I am in love with this ethereal maiden and I long for her with my whole being.
I touch her with my eyes as I capture her likeness on this piece of parchment.
I wish to do more, but I dare not. Not yet. One day we will be one and until then I wait.
She will follow me unto death, but this portrait will remain.
