Red.

They started out so r e d. All fire and passion, they were a whirlwind romance, a maelstrom of emotions. She with her flash-fire temper and enthusiastic personality, she drew him in and never let go. They danced around each other for so long.

She was his best friend's baby cousin, but she was fiery and fierce and everything he loved, and somehow that overruled everything that was wrong about it.

Neither of them knew where it was going, but it was passionate and scary and fun, and in the midst of all the black, this bit of red was all that mattered.
