All my thoughts flooded his mind, as his thought drenched mine. Soon it was hard to differentiate our own minds, which were tangled beyond second thoughts. I had no doubt that we were soul mates, what it meant was irrelevant. I had spent my whole life, skimming the surface, never fully capacitated within the pool of life. Surviving but not living. I'd always hated boundaries, and I laughed at how juvenile I used to be. I thought I was free! But no physical ventures, could make up for the barriers guarding my soul. Now I was truly free. Not in body, but in mind. This was my calling, and for once I was alive.

I felt him (or was that me?) look back on my horrifying memories and origins, without shock or disgust, and accept them. Accept everything. He did not over look my blood thirst or treat it as a bad part of me. He relished in my anger, admired the flaming ball of fire within my core, that even he could not reach. He loved how strong I was. Completely self-reliant... until he came. As he looked back at my recent memories of us together, we were both shocked. He drew? I cursed myself for never finding out. I saw the sketches he drew of me, and it was like being re-born. He loved me! He really cared about me! We both winced at the pain we had caused each other, but channelled the longing and lust into our intimate kiss. 

When we broke apart. We said nothing. The moment was fickle and delicate, which is what made it so beautiful, like the entwining golden frame, crowning an empty mirror... This was perfection.
