As she lay beside me, I caressed her bare shoulder softly. She stirred but did not awaken. I watched her dream, eyelids fluttering delicately. What thoughts filled her head as she slept? Did she ever dream of me? I always dreamed of her.
Drowsy brown eyes peered at me, and I smiled. She returned the gaze for a moment before leaving my embrace and reaching for her clothes. I sighed; our time together had come to an end. Soon we would leave this room and forget that this night ever happened. Beyond these walls, we could not love each other.
