Welcome to a new collection of oneshots. These- as you may have guessed- are based on the 9 "Fruits of the Spirit": Love, Joy, Peace, Longsuffering, Gentleness, Goodness, Faith, Meekness, and Temperance. The first two are linked together. Hope you enjoy!

Love

Once upon a time, there was a couple in love.

Their attraction to each other was small at first and camouflaged by arguments over mostly trivial matters. Before long, though, he had fallen head-over-heels for her and had decided that a life without her by his side was not one worth living. He wined and dined and dance and romanced her until she fell fully under his spell.

Their courtship was far from typical, but it suited them and in what seemed like no time at all, they found themselves facing each other across an altar. She made vows and took him to be her lawfully wedded husband. He kissed his bride with such ardor they made the priest blush.

Life as they lived it- they knew- would never truly be normal given the nature of their professions; but they had each other, they had their love, and through that rose-colored lens they felt that nothing could stop them from living happily ever after.
