"You ready to go then baby?" Sky smiled walking into Sophie's bedroom. Sophie was sitting at her dressing table, completely in her own little dream world. She was slowly and absentmindedly running the hairbrush through her perfect golden curls, staring at her reflection in the mirror with a dreamy look in her blue eyes. 'Wow, she looks amazing' Sky thought, looking at her sitting there. She wore a beautiful pale pink dress with a tight fitting bodice that clung to her slight and slender figure, the flowing skirt laying neatly down her legs as she sat. "Sophie" He repeated softly as he walked up behind her, not wanting to startle her. Sophie flicked herself out of her daydream and smiled sweetly. "Hey Handsome, you look great" She said seeing Sky in smart brown trousers and white shirt. Sky smiled leaning down to kiss her cheek. "Thank you but you look stunning, I've never seen anything as beautiful as you" He whispered into her ear. Sophie giggled, standing up and taking his hand. "You are such a sweet talker, but I like it thank you" She smiled. "Shall we get going to this dance then?"

Sky nodded, kissing her hand before linking his arm with hers. "We'll take my new car" He said. "Your mum's jeep can be a little raggedy sometimes to say the least" Sophie laughed resting her head on his shoulder as they walked. "To say the least" She giggled. Sky smiled and led her down to the Villa car park. His brand new car was sitting ready next to Donna's jeep. It was a smart light green convertible. Sophie looked at it, shocked and excited. "Wow, how did you afford that?" She asked looking to the car then back to Sky. Sky chuckled at her reaction. "I've been saving up, and my parent s gave me money towards it." He replied. He stepped ahead of her and opened the car, bowing politely. "Would the beautiful lady like to take a seat and I shall accompany you to the ball" He smiled. Sophie giggled curtsying to him. "She would" She said happily. Sky nodded and helped her into the car before getting into the driving seat beside her. Starting the engine, he held the wheel with one hand and put his other on her thigh. Sophie smiled loving the feeling of his hand there. Even though his hand was on her thigh, she felt he had a hand on her heart. He owned her heart and it was completely his. "I love you" She said softly. Sky smiled as he drove. "I love you too baby, I love you too"

Sophie smiled, leaning forward to turn on the radio. Some love song started playing from the speakers and Sophie gave a happy contented sigh leaning back in her seat, letting her long golden hair be blown behind her by the gentle evening breeze. Closing her eyes in absolute relaxation, she listened carefully to the lyrics of the song, allowing her thoughts to wander. 'It's a great love song, every couple has a song but I and Sky don't have one. This doesn't suit us' She thought. As she thought Sophie gently slid her hand into Sky's, entwining their fingers lovingly. Sky smiled holding her hand as he drove through the narrow streets of the mainland on the way to the dance hall, the venue of this evening's Valentines ball. Sophie opened her eyes and looked around as they drove up at the tall mismatched buildings with their colourful tiles and imposing flowered vines twisting over courtyard walls. With a sight quiet sigh, she leant forward once more and turned the radio down. Sky noticed the change in the volume and looked to her. "Baby is something wrong?" He asked with a worried tone to his voice.

I was riding shotgun with my hair undone in the front seat of his car

He's got a one-hand feel on the steering wheel

The other on my heart

I look around, turn the radio down

He says baby is something wrong?

I say nothing I was just thinking how we don't have a song

And he says...

Sophie giggled shaking her head. "No not at all" She smiled. "Then what is it, why did you turn the music down?" Sky said. Sophie sighed happily. "I was just thinking we don't have a song" Sophie smiled. "Every couple has their song" Sky smiled. "Can you think of a song to be our song?" He asked. "No" Sophie sighed. "Nothing seems to suit us" Sky nodded and thought for a moment before a soft loving smile played its way across his lips. "We don't have a song, but we sure have something that no one else on this earth can say they have too" He said. "You could say that was a song" Sophie looked to him with a confused expression. "I don't understand" She said tilting her head to one side in confusion. Sky laughed. "There are many things that add up to our song, do you want me to name some for you Soph" He chuckled."Yes please explain" Sophie giggled. Sky nodded and took a deep breath before starting. "When we shut that screen door to your room, we're in our own world where no one can interrupt us. Just you and me together." He started.

Sophie sighed happily, her heart melting. "That's so sweet" She smiled, looking to him "Is there more?". Sky smiled. "Of course" He said. "You know those times when I come up to the Villa late at night when everyone is asleep and throw pebbles so they hit your door. When you wake, you sneak out to the balcony and show me that gorgeous smile of yours. Then you creep out of the house and we go take a moonlit walk on Agnethos beach. That's another moment to our song. Notice these things all have little sounds. The sound of the screen door slamming, the sound of the pebbles on the window and door, all elements of our song and no one else on earth can have our song " Sophie felt bliss running through her body, unable to believe what words were flowing from Sky's lips as he told her the elements of their song. She could hear the love in his voice as he softly spoke, whispers of a guardian angel. She was just speechless, unable to think of what to reply back to him. She moved to kiss his cheek as he drove. "I can think of something for our song" She whispered. "Oh yeah, and what may that be?" Sky asked.

Sophie smiled shyly, moving back into her seat. She smiled before answering his question. "When we are at the phone late at night, late after both of us should have gone to bed. We have to talk in whispers and really slow, to make sure that no one hears us. That's a sound for our song, whispers of us speaking to each other at night when it's late and my mom doesn't know I'm still awake." She said. "Perfect" Sky smiled. "I like it when we whisper when we are talking on the phone. I don't like being away from you, when we whisper it makes it seem that we are closer together." Sophie nodded in agreement. "Anything else?" She asked. Sky nodded reaching over to tickle her. Sophie burst into laughter, squirming around. "Sky" She laughed. Sky laughed. "There we go another part of our song. The way you laugh" He said. "You have the greatest laugh in the world, it's so infectious. It makes me laugh too" Sophie giggled. "I like your laugh" As they pulled up outside the dance hall, Sky got out and walked around to Sophie's side before leading her out and up the steps. "There's one more thing, it's kind of regret in a way but still part of our song." He said linking their arms.

"What do you mean?" Sophie asked. "Well, on our first date, I really wanted to kiss you but I didn't. That's the last part of our song because now I can kiss you whenever I want" Sky replied, moving Sophie to kiss her on the lips. She smiled against his gentle lips and returned the kiss lovingly. Sky smiled, putting his arms around Sophie and holding her there for moment. "That's our song, yes it's not a proper song the kind you hear on the radio but each element has a sound which to us creates a song. Our song baby" He said no louder than a whisper."And when I am apart from you, before I say amen, I ask God if he can play the sounds again for me, so I can keep everything about you fresh in my mind" Sophie smiled sweetly. "I must have the sweetest, most romantic boyfriend in the whole entire universe." She said. Sky smiled and kissed her cheek. "Is my girl ready for the ball?" He asked indicating to the door. "I am" Sophie nodded. "Good" Sky smiled taking her hand and opening the door with his free hand. "Your ball awaits your arrival Miss Sheridan" He said, walking Sophie into the dance hall.

Our song is the slamming screen doors,

Sneakin' out late, tapping on your window

When we're on the phone and you talk real slow

'cause it's late and your mama don't know

Our song is the way you laugh

The first date "man, I didn't kiss her, and I should have"

And when I got home ... before I said amen

Asking God if he could play it again

Sky held Sophie close and kissed her head as they slow danced, gently turning this way and that around the crowd. Sophie gave a happy sigh, loving the feeling as they danced with bodies pressed together. She got lost in the music and in his hold, his loving words of their song playing around in her mind. As they finished dancing and everyone applauded the band, Sky kissed her lovingly and held her hands in his. "I'm going to go get us some drinks" He said. Sophie nodded happily watching him walking over to the large long table at the side of the hall. She had never felt like this, right now she felt that if Sky placed a ring on her finger, she would marry him that instant she loved him so much. She slowly brought herself from her fantasy daydream and looked over to Sky at the table. Her heart plummeted, seeing him standing there talking to two other girls. Fair girls, with posh dresses and far too much make up, flirting shamelessly with her boyfriend. And Sky seemed to be flirting back.

"Sky" She said storming over to him. She was fuming. "Soph babes, this is not what it looks like." Sky defended, putting his hands up in surrender. Seeing they were in big trouble if they stayed where they were, backed away hastily. "Not what it looks like Sky Hansen, you where flirting with two other girls when you are here with me" Sophie stressed. "How could you?" Sky sighed deeply. "Soph, they were flirting with me and I was telling them to back off" He said. "You really think I am going to believe that, screw it Sky. I'm taking a bus back to the docks and going home. And don't try coming to the villa for a moonlit walk tonight." Sophie said tearfully, turning on the heel of her shoe and storming out of the hall. "Sophie" Sky said after her but she was not turning back to him. She stood at the bus stop before boarding and going to the docks. Once back on Kalokairi, she slowly walked home finally allowing the tears to roll down her cheek.

Sky also left the dance hall, driving back to Kalokairi. He managed to beat Sophie back there and snuck inside to the hallway towards Sophie's bedroom. He had brought her a vase of bright red roses earlier that day. He placed them in the hallway and took a note pad from his pocket. Dear Sophie, I am so sorry but you have to believe me. I love you more than anything else and would never flirt away with other girls. If I flirt with anyone, I want it to be you. I hope that you can forgive me and forgot tonight. The things I want you to remember tonight are the elements of our song. The screen door, the tapping on the window, our whispers, your laugh and us kissing. Please remember that and call me tomorrow. I won't come back here until you want me too. Love you baby. Sky. He sighed, placing the note in the flowers before quickly leaving.

Sophie walked into the Villa, tears covering her cheeks. She just wanted to go to bed and cry herself to sleep. Right now it seemed the easiest thing to do. Breathing deeply in an attempt to settle her wrecked nerves and feelings of confusion, she wandered slowly along the hallway not noticing the big vase of flowers at first. As she turned into her bedroom she noticed the red roses out of the corner of her eye. She turned to them and picked up the vase. "Wow" She said, counting twelve perfect roses. She carried them into her bedroom and placed them on the bedside cabinet, noticing the note. She sat on the bed and read it, the sound of Sky's gentle voice as he explained each element to her flooding her mind. "Oh God" She sighed, lying back on the bed. "I overreacted so badly" Right then she wanted Sky to hold her and say it was alright. Sophie eventually cried herself to sleep around midnight.

In the morning, Sophie awoke and immediately reached for the phone, hitting Sky's number one speed dial number. Putting the phone to her ear, she listened to the droning dialling tone, waiting to hear his voice. "Hello" Sky said sleepily on the other side of the line, having not checked the caller ID. Sophie sighed deeply and replied. "Sky, can you come to the Villa please, I really want to talk to you so we can talk about last night". She said. "Okay babes, I'm coming right away." Sky said softly. Sophie hung up the phone and quickly began to dress. She wore her knee length Khaki trousers and simple pull waist shirt before stepping out on to the balcony to wait. Every minute felt so long to her as she stared down the stairs into the courtyard. After what felt like hours, Sophie saw Sky enter the courtyard. "Hey Sophie" He said sounding nervous. She smiled, seeing him standing there. "Come up to my room" She said.

Sky nodded and did so, entering her bedroom and pulling the screen door behind him with a slight slam. They were in their world now, no one could interrupt them. Sophie moved back and sat on the bed, looking over to him with pleading eyes as if silently begging for forgiveness. "I'm so sorry Sky, I don't know what came over me last night" She said. Sky softly smiled, kneeling down in front of her and holding her hands. "You have nothing to say sorry for; I shouldn't have even spoken back to them girls. You were right to act the way you did." He said. Sophie smiled weakly to him. "I didn't believe you when you said you weren't flirting with them, but I really do know that you would never cheat on me" Sophie whispered, feeling tears brimming her eyes. "No tears please, no need for them" Sky replied wiping her eyes. "I would never cheat on you Sophie Sheridan and I know that you would never cheat on me. I love you so much" Sophie smiled wrapping her arms around him and pulling him onto the bed beside her. "I love you too, I got the roses, and they're beautiful"

"I'm glad you like them and the note too" Sky smiled holding her close. "The note too" Sophie said kissing his cheek. "Our song" Sky nodded. He placed his hands on her cheek and kissed her deeply, pouring all of his emotion into it. Sophie smiled sweetly into the kiss returning it passionately. Sky moaned softly, adding his tongue into her mouth causing her to let out a moan also and to lie back on the bed, allowing Sky to lie on top of her. Sky smiled deepening the kiss and trailing his hands down the sides of her body. Sophie moaned loudly feeling his hands and moved hers under his shirt. "Mm, God you taste so good" Sky moaned into her mouth. "You too" Sophie said breaking away. "You know even when we fight, I like what comes after it, a serious make out" Sophie giggled. Sky laughed. "Making out, has got to be one of my favourite hobbies as long you're my partner" he chuckled.

I was walking up the front porch steps after everything that day

Had gone all wrong and been trampled on

And lost and thrown away

Got to the hallway, well on my way to my lovin' bed

I almost didn't notice all the roses

And the note that said...

Our song is the slamming screen doors,

Sneakin' out late, tapping on your window

When we're on the phone and you talk real slow

'cause it's late and your mama don't know

Our song is the way you laugh

The first date "man, I didn't kiss her, and I should have"

And when I got home ... before I said amen

Asking God if he could play it again

Sophie smiled looking across from her sketch book and turned on the radio listening to the songs happily. With a long contented sigh, she leant on her head back on the pillows and listened to the lyrics of the songs. "No" She giggled to herself. "It's not possible, nothing can beat our song" Closing her eyes, she thought of the song Sky had created from simple elements of their close relationship. A smiled playing on her lips, her mind began to piece together a tune and slipping lyrics into place. She had listened to every album she owned and listened to the radio and she couldn't find it. She couldn't possibly find a song, no matter how romantic and sweet it may be, that levelled up to her and Sky's song. "Screen doors, pebbles on the window, and whispers on the phone, laughter and a kiss whenever we can" She said to herself.

She looked back to her drawing, a well put together drawing of her and Sky. With a carefree smile that played on her lips, she carefully began to write out the elements of their song around the drawing. She imagined the moments as lyrics twisting through her mind. She couldn't wait to see Sky again. Three days he was away for, finishing the very last of his studies at a school in Skiathos. Every day she looked forward to their long phone conversations in the evening. She would stay on the phone much later after Donna had popped her head around the door and said 'Lights out now Soph'. She would pretend to be getting ready to sleep, before quickly returning to the phone for their whispered slow talk. Sky was right it did make them feel closer together.

I've heard every album, listened to the radio

Waiting for something to come along

That was as good as our song.


Our song is the slamming screen doors,

Sneaking out late, tapping on his window

When we're on the phone and he talks real slow

Cause it's late and his mama don't know

Our song is the way he laughs

The first date damn I didn't kiss him and I should have

And when I come home before I say amen

Asking God if he could play it again

Play it again

Sky smiled starting the car, ready to drive them to the restaurant. Sophie smiled leaning back in her seat. "You alright baby" Sky asked holding her hand. "Perfect. Just thinking about our song. I've been listening to the radio and all my cd's, I cannot find anything as good as our song." Sophie said. Sky smiled brightly and kissed her hand. "I'm glad that you love it so much it was just something I made up from the things I love most about us being together" He said. Sophie grinned resting her head on Sky's shoulder as he drove. "I absolutely adore it and never ever never want to forget it." She said. An idea came to her mind and she opened the storage box in the dashboard. She searched until she found a pen and an old napkin. "What are you doing?" Sky asked. "Writing down our song" Sophie replied simply, writing on the napkin.

I was riding shotgun with my hair undone

In the front seat of his car

I took a pen and an old napkin

And I wrote down our song
