1. Requiem At Sunset

The flowers lie forgotten on the sand.

The boy knows it was stupid to bring them- knows that she will never, can never be his- but he does not care.

The girl knows it is stupid to be here- knows it is wrong, this law that says they can never be together- but she does not care.

All they know is that in this moment- on this long, lazy, late-summer evening, as the setting sun turns the white sands of Andustar blood-red as she sinks beyond the western horizon- they are the only two people in the world.

Kingdoms be damned- traditions be damned.

Their love burns in this moment brighter than the stars, though it shall be snuffed before its time and lost in the shadows of history.

Fingers and hearts entwined, they walk in the surf, and they talk of nothing, and of everything, and no-one will ever take their memories from them.

The flowers lie forgotten on the sand.
