Theme challenge: Eternal

The story:

The curtain of night fell, infusing the Crystal Tokyo in the quiet, peace nighttime. The light of twinkling stars slipped into the room through the window.

Zoisite was sitting at the window staring at the starry sky with his mind wandering, while his lover Kunzite was sitting beside him with one of his arms habitually circling the waist of the younger one.

They were just revived by the queen with the power of the silver crystal, as well as Nephrite and Jadeite. They are strangers to the world, and the only stuff surrounded familiar to them were each other.

"Kunzite-sama, will we become eternal as well as the Crystal Tokyo, as what the queen told us?"

"We are never eternal, Zoisite, although we will live for a long, long time."

"As what Nephrite said, lives of any living beings in the universe are far less than eternal, no longer how long they live. Even a common star may exist even longer, is that correct?"

"Correct, Zoisite. But next time come to me instead of to Nephrite, I will make a better answer."

"…Don't be jealous, Kunzite-sama, we are just friends. The only reason he came to me was to ask whether the girl named Osaka Naru lived well after his death during our previous lives."

"We reincarnated for several times, from the kingdom to Elysium to the Dark Kingdom. And now we are in Crystal Tokyo. But no longer how we live, our lives are limited, far less than eternal."

"What about the…Crystal Tokyo?"

"Neither is Crystal Tokyo, Zoisite, of course. The sun will terminate one day, and the earth rounding the sun will be doomed. The universe is larger than we can explore, and there are numerous planet in the unknown areas of the universe holding more prosperous civilization than earth, but none of them is eternal."

"Does the true eternal ever exist, Kunzite-sama? If…Hmm…"

After a gentle and passionate kiss, Kunzite released Zoisite and answered seriously and sincerely:"Yes, it does, Zoisite. No matter how many times we reincarnate I love you, and it is a fact that is ETERNAL."

"Me too, Kunzite-sama…"
