“Look the universe is submerged in darkness, but none can unsettle the constellation of stars.

They outshine in every way.”
He thought for a while, then he lifted her. high, up to the sky.
“Oh yes, tonight’s stars will disappear to another place in the universe, while the next time the dark is lit, it will be sprinkled with your name, and mine, of course.”
She smiled at his jest. For surely the stars of tonight will know that their love is not without a touch of its luster.
