She listens wordlessly to his story, hears the echoes of his pain. Those echoes resound within her, touching her own deep wounds. There is sometimes a sweetness to pain and so it is now, her aching soul finding a kindred spirit. Her hand reaches up to touch his rough cheek as a single tear slides from one of her grey eyes, frosty in the moonlight.

Instead of answering him she moves closer, arms sliding around his neck, and stands on her toes. Ignoring the chimes of the warning bells that ring in her head she listens to her heart, pulls him closer and their lips meet in the dark. Somewhere a moth makes a final, fated circuit before diving home into the flames.
