Sky-blue flower

Romance

Memories of Valinor

I remember that first kiss of ours like a sweet mistake we didn't want, nor couldn't avoid.

I remember how your hair did shine, like flames below the sun of Aman.

I remember the way your eyes, descendant orbs from the blue sky of peaceful days, did look at me... like if I were the only one, indispensable for you.

I remember that day, that afternoon, because it was only ours. We went to ride together, stopping to admire the green meadows, the wide woods with their exuberant trees. We left our horses pasturing calmly at one field of those, entering ourselves into the forest. We lay on the grass, weaving of everything. You touched gently the petals of a sky-blue coloured flower with your fingers, your gaze was lost, distant, immersed in that delicate form of expression of the nature. However, I did contemplate your hair; Swaying in the breeze, it looked as it was fire, burning everything around it, indomitable. I did look up your naked torso, asking myself if someone so beautiful as you will ever exist, if it was a delusion of the flighty providence. I looked elsewhere, not being able to hold so much beauty during a large period of time which was, perhaps, just some seconds. That evening I totally lost every sense of time. We expent a lot of time in silence, for we liked to do so when we were together. I closed my eyes, letting the air caress my face, dreaming of your touch being the one doing it. When I opened them again, you were there, closer to me, discreet as your used to be. I didn't move, but you placed yourself by my side, leaning forward my face. I will never know if I did actually whisper your name for you to hear me, or I did only think it, muttered it inside my mind, like the title of the most wonderful lovesong. Our lips were ice, melting the ones into the spirited hot of the others. I did rest my hand on your waist, while you caressed my check, then my hair, naughtily undoing the golden ribbons I'm used to wear.

We walked back, holding the reins of our horses, side by side, sharing furtive glances, being them the same as always. Nothing really changed that evening... I just wore a sky-blue coloured flower on my hair, and you tied a golden ribbon to your wrist.

Alex Rushmer: Chapter One: Not much is happening in this chapter, but I was absolutely fascinated by the depth of your character development. I love how you just sat there with the reader and explored Eddward. Usually, that sort of thing gets boring very fast, but this was actually really cool! He's so unique ...

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

zoheusher20: What more can I say? The writing style and little details drew me into the book and for the entirety of the story I was Juliet. I felt her turmoil and emotions and every trouble or triumph as they arrived. This story was very different and had quite a few little but unexpected twists that made it...

allisonflin: Without a doubt the most well written story that I have read on this site. Informative, discriptive, well punctuated. Then we have the story itself, which by the way I am waiting on the edge of my seat for part two of, the characters are more than likeable, you feel them and their emotions...

christylynnr5: This was beyond amazing! I loved this book. The characters seemed so real. It was amazing how the author let Zak and Kaylees personalities slowly change. This story was very sad and eye opening. It could teach some people a very worthy lesson. It was a great combination of romance, mystery, and a...

SandraHan1: This story is very descriptive, with vivid scenes from the very beginning, which made for a good scene setting. I love the symbolism in names, such as “Naysayers”, “Hadd”, etc . The story itself is revolutionary, intriguing, emotional and exciting. I was very pleased to see that there is a happy ...

Sabrina Ettey: The story plot is great. I loved it. Just the grammar punctuation and writing style was kind of distracting. But with the smooth polishing, it may shine like a pearl. :)

Sandra Estrada: I loved every minute of it and I thank my lucky stars that brought me to the story, it's been a whirlwind of emotions, plot twist after plot twist but I never got tired of them.
