Author's Note: Here's the graduation.
Theme Ten: Graduation
"You look so amazing." Imogen said breathlessly as she looked over at her girlfriend, Fiona, who was dressed in her dark blue graduation cap and gown. It was the night before graduation and Fiona was a bundle of nerves. She'd been nervous all week.
"Really?" Fiona asked as she turned to look in one of the big mirrors in her condo. Imogen nodded. Suddenly, tears started to roll down Fiona's cheeks. "I can't do this, Immy... I just can't." She said as she sat down on a nearby sofa. Imogen sat down beside her.
"Can't do what?" Imogen asked as she held her girlfriend close.
"I don't want to leave you. I don't want to graduate... I don't want to go to design school. I can't. I can't do anything without you." She cried as more tears came down her cheeks. Imogen sighed. She knew this would come, she knew their goodbyes would come. She knew that Fiona was feeling regret.
"Fiona Coyne." Imogen spoke.
"You said we could make it through anything." Imogen said as she pulled her girlfriend's head up and looked into her blue eyes. "You said that we would be together forever. Just because it's the end of high school, doesn't mean it's the end of us." She retorted.
"You're right." Fiona said as she dried her tears.
"Fiona?" Imogen asked.
"You're the one for me, okay?" Imogen confessed. "I love you." She said for the first time and Fiona gasped.
"You really mean it?" Fiona asked.
"I love you too." Fiona answered back, and it felt so good to finally say it and get it off her chest. She had felt love for Imogen for such a long time, she just wasn't sure that the other girl felt it back so soon. "We can get through anything. Even graduation, design school, and distance. I'm not gonna let go."
"Me either." Imogen replied as she pulled Fiona in for a quick heated kiss. She could feel the raw emotion radiating off of her girlfriend as their lips danced together. They each pulled away breathless.
"Do you want to stay tonight?" Fiona asked. "We can have one of our famous sleepovers, pop some popcorn, watch movies, gossip-" She began to list but was cut off by Imogen.
"You had me at sleepover." Imogen grinned.
