Chapter 4

As they were embracing each other, Allie drew her lips closer and closer to his ear and whispered.

"Happy birthday, Noah"

Noah was shocked that she had remembered, and he knew that he had just gotten the best birthday present he could have ever wished for. And he had wished for it, every single day.

"I got just what I wanted," he whispered back.

They were still holding each other when Noah realized that she was crying. He could feel her tears trickling down his own cheek. He gazed deep into her eyes and saw that they were drowning in sorrow.

"Something's wrong?" He inquired, worried.

"There is no way my mother will ever let me be with you. The only way is if I ran away from home. I don't know if I could do that to my family," her voice was cracking, "I-I love you. More than you could ever imagine, but I don't think we could last."

"And I love you more than anything in the world." He was crying again, too.

"I just don't think I could run away from home. They will surely find me and keep me from you. They will not stop until we are apart. I don't want that to happen."

Noah kept holding her.

"I want you to think about what you really want," he said "and base your answer solely on that. I don't want to force you to do anything you don't want to do. If you really want to run away you are welcome to stay with me, but I think, right now, we should enjoy this moment. I've missed you so much and I can't believe you liked my poem…"

As he spoke she interrupted him by pushing her lips against his.

She took her lips away from his to say;

"I didn't just like it. I loved it."

She then took his hand in hers and felt how warm they were. She liked it a lot. She never wanted to let go of him, but she knew somehow, someway, her parents would make her.

She didn't want to go home. She asked Noah to stay with him tonight.

"Of course you can," He smiled that smile that made her fall in love with him in the first place.

They sat down together, still holding each other, right in the empty road, looking up at the stars. Noah was distracted, though. He couldn't look to far from her without being drawn back to her. Was this what true love was really like?

She noticed that he was no longer looking at the stars, and met eyes with him.

"Aren't they beautiful?" She asked.

The stars we illuminating her and he could see the reflection of the street lights in the reflection of her bright blue eyes.

"You are the most beautiful thing I see" He whispered.

For the next few hours they sat there, alternating between kissing and staring deep into each others' eyes, until they decided to go home.

They walked hand-in-hand back to his car laughing about inside jokes and stories from the past they had together.

She knew that any problem she had he could fix, and that they would never be separated ever again. She didn't care what her parents thought. She had found true love, and all that mattered in the world to her was him right now. And to him, all that mattered in the world was her.
