Part of Dante's initial problem is that he had survivors guilt. He had survived where Hatorania had not, but there was more to it than that. He hadn't gone to look for her, hadn't hunted her down, hadn't demanded an explanation for her actions, mostly because he had felt relieved at the outcome. He hadn't wanted to marry her... not anymore. They had been engaged for over an era and strangely enough it had caused them, at least for his part, to grow apart. There was no other word for it. He enjoyed her company and she was pretty, but the emotion that he thought had been there simply wasn't anymore. It wasn't an easy thing to accept and it did make him wonder what was wrong with him, except when Niven was around.

When she walked into the room he lit up like a bonfire. The emptiness he'd been feeling disappeared and he felt warm, not like from the sun, but from inside from the depth of his soul. She filled him with a light he'd never felt before. Until he'd fallen for Niven he hadn't been sure what real love meant. She was just as self sacrificing as he was, at least he thought so. Although she hadn't expressed feelings for him stronger than powerful friendship before this summer, she'd still have denied herself even that if she thought it would be better for the friend in question. Dante's hug became, not tighter per se for he was already holding her pretty tight, but firmer in the arms and softer in the chest so she could mold into him more. He relished the warmth of her embrace and the feel of her against him. The silky feel of her hair and the sweet dulcet tones of her voice.

He gave a pause of respect for Hatorania at his intended's comment. A truer statement had never been said. Is only other outward response was to continue to hold Niven close and to gently kiss the top of her head. As Dante did so he breathed deep the smell of Niven. It was home to him now, this scent. He prayed that his home would always smell of her.

Her confession of love caused him to gently pull her chin up to him again. This time he kissed her gently, brushing her cheek gently with the back of his Eshalhier fingers. The kiss started out small, but grew more passionate. Something about this woman opened the iron doors surrounding Dante's soul. With her they were wide open and his heart was bare to her. Gently breaking the kiss he kept his eyes closed and put his forehead against hers. "... and that love is what sustains me," he stated so enamored with her that if someone were to sneak up behind him now wearing full plate, a one man band, and carrying a mooing cow he still wouldn't have noticed them.

When he finally met her gaze again he queried, "It is getting late my love. Shall we start for home?" He of course had his arms still tightly around her, as if he never wanted the moment to end, but Niven probably noticed with increasing regularity that he was having more and more trouble releasing an embrace when she was the one involved.

It was easy for Niven to get caught up in the passion of Dante's kiss in light of his confession. She kissed him back with the same intensity and desire, every part of her being alight with love for him. As he broke the kiss and held his forehead against hers, his eyes still closed, she looked at him as he spoke. She smiled a soft smile though she knew he wouldn't see it. Instead she just murmured a soft, "Mmmmm," in agreement. She felt exactly the same way.

When he opened his eyes he suggested the head back to the house. She nodded. It was getting late and they'd had a busy day. She didn't feel very tired, but she knew that had more to do with her company then anything else. The moment her blond head hit that pillow, she'd be out. If he didn't move towards the house neither did she. She had noticed that their embraces tended to take a long time to end, but she didn't mind one iota.

The embrace didn't end, at least not immediately. Whether by coincidence or perhaps by some other twist of fate music filtered out to where they were. Was it a street minstrel, or perhaps from one of the nearby edifices? Maybe it was simply a song in Dante's heart, but it made the mood seem right and reenforced his desire to continue holding his beloved, not wanting the evening to end.

When the music abated Dante weaved the hand closest to Niven around her waist and used her other hand to take and hold her closest one. He led her to their home by way of the beach, making the walk a little farther than the more direct route, but by far more romantic. The stars were out in force and the soul inspiring colors of the heavens were in full glory, purples, pinks, blues. It was a solid second for the most beautiful thing the dracon had seen that night.

The dracon turned and looked at the woman he loved the starlight dancing in her eyes. Somehow the reflection off her jade irises made the vision even more lovely. As they reached the cavern that they could take up through to the house and the base of the hill that led to the back door Dante took Niven into another embrace and kissed her firmly under the starlight. He drank her in, ensorcelled with all his senses by her being. Lilac, the scent of her perfume, filled his nostrils, the sound of her breathing filled his ears, her warm embrace left his sense of touch complete unaware of anything else, of course he could taste her, they were kissing after all, and even with his eyes closed he saw her behind his lids, like that special picture a sailor keeps with him of his lady fair that he shows to no one else, Niven's picture would always be with him.

His breath of course was quickened and his heart racing again. His lips were eager and his hands were shaking just slightly from the effort of keeping them from 'wandering' to areas they shouldn't. To Dante this was paradise, sure the beach helped, but where ever Niven was would feel like that now. Through it all his mind kept racing trying over and over again to figure out what he possibly could have done to deserve someone like her.

Unless she pulled him to the ground right there the dracon would escort his lady fair back to the house and up to the room. There he would bow, gently kiss the back of her hand, and after she closed her bedroom door head back out to the beach for a cold swim in the sea.

Niven didn't mind that their embrace didn't end immediately, but simply enjoyed being close to the one she loved. Being wrapped up in his arms was a place of contentment for her and she had no desire to leave that place anytime soon.

When he finally broke their embrace and started to lead her leisurely towards the house by the hand, Niven smiled warmly at him and then walked silently with him under the starlight, taking in the entire darkening with the beauty of the stars and the soothing lapping of the waves upon the shore.

At the cavern that lead to the house, Dante pulled her close again for another kiss and she melted into him. She let him drink of her as much as he wanted as she did the same. If his kiss was a wine, she would desire to forever be drunk on him.

At length the kiss was broken and Dante gallantly led her back into the house and to her bed chambers. "I had the most wonderful darkening. I will cherish it forever." She leaned in gently to kiss him again before he bid her goodnight and then seductively smiled as she retreated into her room and shut the door.
