The Promise

And they danced in the cosmos, so close that they felt each others heartbeat… surrounded by the light and the laughter of the stars Touching each other more with their soul than with their body because, being from other planets, they were hardly physical.

“Don’t forget me!”, he whispered, holding her so close that they felt as if they were one. “Remember to wake me up, when you remember who we are, with the kiss of uncondititional, eternal love.”

She knew the moment of goodbye was soon to come. “Don’t leave me!”, she felt a heaviness she never felt before – in Sirius there is no such thing as heaviness – but Earth had already started to make its presence felt and she heard the call of adventure, as did Darius.

Darius looked into her eyes: “I will never leave you! No matter how long it takes for the two of us to find back to our union, I will FIND you! But you will have to be strong and remember…. remember this moment, this promise we are giving each other now.”

“Time goes by so quickly!”, La Ara sighed. “We only have this last dance before we disappear and I just became your royal wife. How can life be so cruel to separate us again?”

“We will always feel each other, no matter how far apart – and if I exist within Earths dimension when you are there or if I am in a different realm. We will have dreams, get signs and feel each others presence, no matter if our lifetime is with someone else or not. We will always meet before we come back and when the time is right, you and I will reunite on Earth and there will be no going back.”

La Ara looked away… she did not want to show him her tears.

“My love – my fair and royal queen, don’t you ever turn away from me when the tears wet your lovely cheeks. The sparkle in your eyes has never been more beautiful as in this pure moment of sadness. But I am so excited to help Gaia and be part of her children. We are meant to create something unique and special – and after many incarnations, we will unite again and finish what we have started, as one.”

He pulled her close one more time. The eternal embrace, that both would always feel when they closed their eyes, surrounded both with love and the knowing that they would never be alone. Then he vanished and La Ara was left behind, knowing she would soon follow him to Earth and search for him until he appeared after many, many lifetimes on earth as well as on many other planets.

“I am and will forever be yours, Darius!”, she whispered, moving to the rhythm of her stars laughter. Then La Ara, Goddess of the starwinds, closed her eyes and vanished into air. A long second passed by and when she opened her eyes…
