Andromeda and Perseus

He focused the telescope. 

“There it is.”

She looked through the black metal tube.

“That’s Andromeda?”

“Uh-huh. She was a princess whose parents chained her to a rock to sacrifice to a sea monster. Perseus rescued her and they fell in love.”

“I love stories like that.” She inhaled the sweet night air and sat on the blanket on the grass.

He sat next to her.

She smiled at him.

He wrapped his arm around her and her heart beat faster.

He leaned in slowly, touching his lips to hers, then pressing harder.

Something deep inside her trembled.

“My Perseus.”
