Rubies and Emeralds

Pairing(s): Dia x Eve

Summary: Eve's POV. Eve thinks of her two favorite things, and something else she's started to love even more...

I've always had a weakness for stories and fine gems, preferably rubies. Any time someone was willing to share a tell, far fetched or a factual story, I couldn't help but stop what I was doing to just sit and listen. And if a ruby was presented to me, I couldn't ever turn my eyes away from the beauty of the deeply red gemstone. These two weaknesses I have had since I was a little girl, and have grown to love both dearly.

A story, fictional or truth, was always an enjoyable event. It was a time for people to gather as a family of sorts, to share tells and just listen to experiences and fantasy-like stories of adventure and romance...

A ruby, on the other hand, was the color of passion. Red, crimson almost, was a beautiful shade that expressed love, passion, and compassion alike. It could be a sign that one likes you, or lusts for you deeply. And I loved such a gem that spoke such valuable volumes of love.

But lately... I've found another expression of love that I've come to hold dear. An emerald green shade of love. Spotting wispy green fluttering by would steal my breath, catching my attention long enough to lock eyes with sharp jade. A ruby blush would powder my cheeks, but I didn't mind. At least the same reflected off the others' pale features, giving me hope in the future...

It may just be wishful thinking, but the emerald beauty which is Dia has stolen my heart of rubies, and I wouldn't change it for the world.
