Our prompt from for today is “sunset”

Slowly sifting into the distance, the sun bid farewell to the day. Using a well meaning glow, it moved across the horizon. It was something special, she wanted to remember. Watching it drift, with Graham at her side. Her safety holding her with a windswept cuddle. She smiled, as the ocean lapped beneath her feet. It was a magical place, full of memories, which he needed to be a part of.

‘I’ve never seen a sunset so beautiful,’ he said, squeezing her hand.

‘Or anyone I would rather see it with,’ Masie said.

‘What now, do we just live here?’

She wished they could stay, but going home, telling her parents she had married without them, was a job she wanted to leave till later. They wouldn’t understand, it was better to be alone. It was all too mind blowing, the wedding, the bridesmaids, the expensive food.

It was better this way, and at least her parents didn’t need to pay thousands just to see her married. She watched them worry over seating arrangements, cars, and it wasn’t fair.

When they went back, they would celebrate with a pub lunch.
