Dracula walked aside Martha, his zing. They had started dating not so long time ago, so the relationship was still fresh and new for both of them. The night was dazzling on the island, or what the local humans called it, Hawaii. The moon shined above and the waves hit the beach. Dracula looked at his lover beside him and Martha gave him a sweet smile in return. She stopped walking and turned to look at the ocean.
"Every night in here is beautiful, don't you think?"
"Yes, but not as beautiful as you, my darling," Dracula said as he took her hand.
Martha brought her other hand to cup Dracula's cheek and moved closer to his chest. Dracula was getting more nervous when Martha's face was only a few inches away. They hadn't kissed yet but seemed like it was going to happen now. He wasn't prepared to do this tonight. He had planned to kiss Martha later, maybe at their future wedding. He knew she was going to be his wife soon. But there was no need to rush. Dracula loved the way things were now.
He could feel Martha's breath on his lips. It was happening! Martha closed her eyes and expected to feel Dracula's lips, but there was nothing. She opened her eyes and saw that her lover had pulled away.
"I- um!... M-Martha, I'm sorry! There's nothing wrong with you! I really do want to kiss you-, uh, but I... I'm not sure how. I wasn't prepared for this at all," Dracula rambled. He was so embarrassed with himself. Martha stared but her expression softened and she smiled.
"Drac, it's not a big deal. I'm nervous as well. I think my feelings got the control over my actions..." she glanced away and blushed.
Dracula swallowed. He stepped closer and touched her chin to make her look at him.
"Don't be ashamed. I thought we were going to kiss on our wedding day, but knowing you want it sooner...How can I refuse?" He spoke with a loving tone.
"Wait, our wedding?" Martha's eyes lit up.
"I-I didn't mean to say that aloud..."
Dracula didn't have time to keep going when Martha pulled on his cloak and smacked their lips together. He was shocked by a sudden kiss but he wasn't going to pull away again. He relaxed and closed his eyes. They wrapped their arms around each other and deepened the kiss. To feel other's lips against own was magical for Dracula. When they pulled apart, Martha smiled.
"The answer is yes," she whispered. Dracula didn't understand.
"Yes for what?"
"For your proposal. Because you mentioned our wedding..."
"B-But I-...But I want to buy you a ring and do it properly! I want to kneel in front of you and ask it directly! Don't say yes now, save it for later!" Dracula panicked.
Martha laughed at her lover's silliness. Dracula calmed himself and gave a laugh as well. They both turned to look at the moonlight. Dracula took Martha's hand and squeezed it gently.
"When do you want to get married, my love?" he asked without looking at her.
"Right now I can't tell... Let's enjoy the present, Drac. We have all the time in this world after all, so why to rush?" Martha answered and turned to face him.
She was correct. They could get married whenever they wanted to. They leaned in at the same time and shared another kiss. Life couldn't get any better for Dracula now that he had found his zing, and perhaps, a future mother for his child. But he had to wait much longer before bringing up children. He just couldn't wait what the future hold for them.
