We hungered down , laying flat on our backs so no one could see us . We were whispering to each other , sharing fantasy’s about what we thought . The intruders were going down a foot beaten pathway to the other side of the quarry . Mary and I returned to our feet , the entrance was clear and we made our break for the road . As we neared the roadway we began laughing out loud , chasing each other , like children without cares or worry’s .
Not thinking about where we were going , we had taken a course towards town rather than going back to our campsite . The evening was magical , the weather was perfect , I reached down and took Mary’s hand within my own , life couldn’t get any better ever . Mary had a continuous smile as we walked slowly hand in hand , looking to the stars and talking . Every now and then we would stop , lock arms around each other brushing our lips together lightly , kissing so passionately .
With our minds embedded on each other the night was slipping away . We continued walking all night as we were beginning to notice the sun coming up . Mary and I had made it back to the front of the quarry and I made the suggestion of going back in and watching the sun come up . Mary found the tallest spot , we helped each other to the top and waited for the new day . We sat as before without saying a word , we watched with amazement as the sun was coming up slowly . I was daydreaming about future events , while sitting watching this wondrous event . I grew as a man in more ways than one , we both had started a new life , I think that morning watching the sun light the ground around us , Mary and I both knew we would never be alone . We knew there was something bigger than us and we embraced this day like we never had before . Mary and I walked back to the wayside to see if any one was awake . The grass was wet as we walked off the road into the wayside , Mary stopped grabbed forcefully kissing me , she gazed at me with the most sincere and thoughtful look saying , I will never forget you or this night .
