“Will you marry me, Alysia Renay?”
Supposedly six, life changing words.
And they were life changing. They were life changing in the way the sun rises about the horizon every morning, bringing with it warmth from the darkness of space. They were life changing in the way that a first sword would change a girl to a woman. A subtle but vast shift in perspective.
That I could stay with Elya.
That I would be her battle-wife as she would be mine.
That we could claim the stars together.
