These sound like such good characters. The last sentence was slightly confusing to me, but made much more sense the second time I read it. This was so adorable and goofy. I live for that kind of fluff.
“Sky,” Lincoln murmured, and I looked up at him. “I don’t know what’s going to happen, but if something does… if I never see you again, I want to…”
He turned so we were face to face, and I stood up straighter. He put his thumb under my chin, lifting it up. I looked in his eyes as he tipped his head gently to one side, bending down, letting his lips touch mine. It wasn’t anything passionate, really, just a sort of confession to each other, a way of saying that we were each other’s world.
In science, a long time ago, middle school, the teacher was talking about the world of sprawling stars. We spent a class talking about binary stars. Binary stars are two celestial bodies—stars as the name suggests—that are bound together as they orbit around the same point. I could give you a more scientific definition, but it probably wouldn’t be right. Science was never my forte.
When I learned about the phenomenon, I was in the height of my romantic stupidity, longing for fictional characters that were too perfect and too, well, not real. The term binary stars and the way two people in the great romances orbit around their mutual love and dedication forever became linked in my head. The kiss became the point me and Lincoln orbited around. Me and Lincoln became the stars, forever bound together to travel parallel paths, always together in the great void of the universe.
this is from the height of my paranormal romance, so if you don’t like romance or kissing, you might want to wait a bit
