A/N: Hi, my lovely readers! *Waves* This is a flash fic I'm writing in honor of the birth month of one of the sweetest souls in this fandom, Shae Maen, who also happens to be my twify. Happy Birthday, E. I hope this brightens up your day. Love you, Beebeejee. xox

Chapter-1: Prologue

A tag.

A label.

A mark.

To most people, all it was just a piece of metal.

To my fellow brethren, it was the way back home.

But to me? To me, it was everything I was.

Until that moment.

The moment, she entered my life, she became everything to me.

And this piece of metal was what promised to keep me tethered to her even halfway across the world.

Leaning down, I pressed a soft kiss on my slumbering beauty's forehead. Then, with conviction burning within me, I picked up my bag and walked out the door.

A/N: Share your thoughts with me and leave a review.

The chapter lengths will vary between 500-700 words each from here on. The posting schedule for now is Mondays and Thursdays until I finish writing and then maybe more frequent updates. :)

Thanks for reading. Be sure to wish Ms. Birthday Girl a happy birthday.

See you tomorrow with Revised Curriculum.

Take care.
