Disclaimer: Yeah, no sorry not mine, just played with for a bit.
On the ring finger of her right hand a band of gems winked at her in the moonlight. It was a promise ring he had given her all those years ago when they had survived the end of the world. A promise of friendship, of love and of hope. A reminder of all the sunrises to come and the importance of belief in one's self and each other.
"I don't wear jewelry." She had protested with a grimace when he had placed the multi-colored band of sapphires on her finger, she had tried not to stare as the colors shimmered like a fresh rainbow.
"It's not really jewelry," He qualified, still holding her hand. "It's more of a symbol." Then he had reached out and brushed a hand across the gemstone on her forehead and lightly fingered her cloak. "You wear symbols."
Now the boy from her memory was a man and he kneeled before her in the moonlight offering yet another symbol.
"A promise," He smiled as he saw her gaze at the ring on her right hand, "Another symbol of a promise to wear on the other hand."
"What are you promising this time Boy Wonder?" She asked dryly, but she let him place the solitaire on her left hand without protest.
"Me, just me this time," He stood and pulled her into his arms, wrapping himself in the scent of her. "Is that enough?"
"Enough?" She paused to think it over for a moment, "That's everything."
