AN: Not beta-d, of course. Enjoy!

She's so innocent, standing there in the light of dusk. You slowly walk to join her, memories of the same steps, the same path. But it was a different girl. And you're a different boy now.

She turns. She squints to make you out and then smiles in recognition.

You walk to her as though you are in a trance. And you kind of are. You slowly brush her red curls away from her face and look into her chocolaty brown eyes.

You lean down.

"Scorp?" she asks.

Carefully, almost hesitantly, you kiss her. You've never been hesitant with a girl before, but Rose is different.

She kisses you back, granting you entrance. As you kiss her you forget about your past. Slowly she comes off the ground and you realize something. This is heaven.
