A Thousand Years

Chapter 7

"Nami,"

"Nami,"

"RAY!" She jerked up, looking around her. She was sitting on sofa inside Ray's dressing room. A hand on her shoulder made her turn around. She never felt that happy and relieved to see the girl's face. She grabbed Ray's shoulders and hugged her.

"Nami, what's wrong?" Ray asked. She got worried when Nami started to cry.

Nami tightened the hug, letting out tears. "Oh my god, I thought I'd lost you," she said. She inhaled in Ray's scent and kissed her shoulder.

"You have bad dream?" Ray asked. She rubbed the girl's back gently. Nami finally released her.

"At some part," Nami said. Ray wiped her tears off with her thumbs. "I'm sorry," she said sheepishly.

"It's okay," Ray said. She took Nami's hands, holding it. "You'd never lose me, you know that." She put their joining hands up, smiling. Nami just stared at her, letting out another drop of tear. "Hey, what's the matter?" she asked, wiping the tear away.

"Sorry," Nami said. She dried eyes, looking back at Ray. She raised a hand, trailing her fingers over Ray's brow, nose, lips and chin before cupping her cheek.

Ray knitted her brows slightly at Nami's odd act. "Nami wha…" Her word died as Nami took her lips. Her heart fluttered inside her chest. This was the first time Nami initiated a kiss. She closed her eyes as Nami's soft lips moved against her.

Moment later, Nami broke the kiss. She leaned head against her. She took Nami's cheek, caressing it. "I wonder what you'd seen in your dream. You're...different."

Nami leaned off. "It's a beautiful dream," she said with small smile. Ray lifted an eyebrow and she chuckled. "I just realized that I love you…ouch!" she cried as Ray pinched her belly. "Ray!"

"We've been dating for months and you just realized it now?"

"No, I meant…Ray!" Nami cried. When Ray didn't release her, she took the girl's cheeks and kissed her lips. Ray stopped immediately. She leaned off, looking into Ray's deep brown eyes. "I just realized, maybe I have loved you for long, long time."

Ray's felt warmth in her chest at the words. It was the most romantic words someone had ever said to her. And she was happy that the person was Nami. She cupped the girl's cheeks. "I'll always love you too."

Nami nodded, smiling. "I know."

"Anyway, I have a present for you."

"Present?" Nami asked. Ray nodded before turning around to take something from handbag. It was a small black box. "What's that?"

"A present."

"Yes, you just say that."

"Nami,"

She chuckled when Ray pinched her arm lightly. Ray put the box between them and opened it. Her eyes widened as soon as she saw the content.

"I made it myself," Ray said. She took the bracelet and put it on Nami's wrist. "You know there's a legend says…"

"Two persons who possess the stone will be bound forever," Nami finished the sentence while staring at the deep purple stone on the bracelet.

"How…did you know that?" Ray asked.

"You've said it before."

"Me? I just told you now," Ray said. "Anyway, I'm wearing it too."

Nami lifted her gaze and saw the same stone on the necklace Ray was wearing. She reached for the pendant, holding it. She turned to the bracelet on her wrist. "Thank you."

"You're welcome. I thought to give you tonight after dinner, but you said you have recording and we can't meet tomorrow, so…"

"I'll come to your place," Nami said, holding gaze on her girlfriend.

"Don't you have recording today?"

Nami shook her head. "I canceled it, and I will cancel all my schedules for today and tomorrow," she said and leaned in for another kiss.

Ray was overwhelmed with her girlfriend's sudden change. First, Nami said that she had loved her for long time and now she kissed her- three times. Three kisses in a day! They had been dating for two months but it was her who always initiated anything between them. Whatever dream Nami had seen, it seemed to change her. She cupped Nami's cheeks as their lips moved together.

Nami was unsure whether it was just a dream. But at the moment she made a wish. In all her life-times she wanted to love only one person; the person who was kissing her back now. Moreover, she was ready to reveal their relationship to public. She wasn't afraid anymore.


Down on the floor, out of sight, there were three yellow petals. It slowly vanished as it had accomplished its task. The two girls were now celebrating their true and pure love.Fin
