The world hadn’t seen such a romance. Whatever it was between Mark and Antoan was much more than a plain relationship. It began in the weirdest conditions and most unbelievable coincidences.
They adored every single moment of the other’s presence and they actually had no day apart since the beginning of their togetherness. You know – as in every relationship they experienced happiness, sorrow, hardship – but they stood united and faced them together. Moreover, they overcame everything – they were strong together. Their power was hidden in their love. Not that they knew how to keep it vital, but their love had always been as vital as in the first day – it is vitality thoroughly came from their passion. Every morning Mark had his breakfast in their bed, Mark could never complain about the lack of care and attention. However, he wasn’t doing less than his best, too. The thing is that they never tried to make their relationship more attractive – it always remained natural without unnecessary artificialization. I believe that their way was the right one, they had intuitively found it. Before Mark, Antoan had plans about leaving the country, he was going to work and study abroad – Mark changed all the plans. Mark had similar plans, he was already accepted to study at a French university in Paris – Antoan didn’t let him go. Love required self-sacrifice and compromise.
Antoan had serious plans about their future togetherness, he wanted to keep Mark forever as his. He was a crazy boy and for their 2nd monthsary, he came with a surprise. They were out to dinner and in front of more than 100 people in the restaurant he asked for Mark’s hand – Mark couldn’t help blushing. Antoan approached him with an engagement ring – delight for the eyes. His warm words – delight for the soul.
Antoan: My chappy,
My breath and very need
My happiness and smiley sadness
My life and afterlife
My smile – my sunrise
will you be my Future?
Though he had always been very natural and frank and knew nothing about posing, he had never been so romantic. With all the great surprise, Mark said a big and bold, a loud YES to him and let Antoan put the ring on his finger. Mark was in tears, over his honey smile two rivers were flowing. Everyone there dropped a tear then, the moment was very emotional, Mark’s tears, even out of happiness, tore apart Antoan’s heart and he grabbed him, cuddled him tightly.
That is how their real togetherness started. No, dear reader – happiness is not eternal, this was the beginning of the end, they didn’t know, but they were to get to know.
