As they both sat in silence next to a french window, he noticed something in her eyes.
“You are beautiful”
“I wish you could see yourself through my eyes”
“I wish i could ” after a long paused she whispered… “even from mine.”
Girl: Is it so important to go? Even today?
Boy: It is. Otherwise I would have not gone.
Girl: I want you to stay, please. Don’t go away.
As the hands felt the the separation, the hearts were taken over by a strange fear. She could feel his absence. It was an important day for her. She needed him besides.
Girl: It is too bright, I cannot.
Doctor: Take it slow. Open your eyes slowly. Yes. Good.
Amazed by what she saw, she screamed in happiness !
Girl: I can see. Everything ! Yes. I can see. Just everything.
Her joy was boundless. She asked for him and they called him in. While she was still admiring herself in the mirror. A voice over her shoulder whispered,
“Didn’t i tell you, you are beautiful.”
She knew it was him. She turned around in joy. But what she saw was not a joyful sight. The nurse was helping him stand. He looked fine. But was looking in a different direction.
Tears rolled down her eyes. Hers or His? Who cares.
He shared his sight and exchanged her darkness.
In the end, Love triumphs.
