"Katherine?"

"Yeah?"

His fingers searched for my hand in the dark. The moon was our only light, and the glimmering shine outlined his plump lips and round nose. I rolled closer to him, wet grass chilling my back.

"Katherine?"

"What is it?"

"Nothing."

"Tell me."

"Come closer."

I strained my neck upwards and lay my face next to his so our cheeks brushed. His breath was hot on my face:

"Don't leave."

"It was never my plan."

A long pause went by. We waited for the stars to shine brighter. I let him curl his fingers between mine.

"You don't understand."

"And what is it I do not understand, Tyler?"

"Love."

"Do I have to? Is it vital?"

Silence. I melted into him. He turned his face to me, expression of warm rain.

"Not now. But it will be."

He folded me into his arms and took me to a place where I imagined never coming a time when knowing what love meant would matter.

Thank you for all the comments, guys! I will work on the last sentence, as I do agree, it is sort of confusing. Thanks!
