In The Forest of Whimsy and Dreams

Adonis walked up behind Cybele as she stood in the shade of the Forest of Whimsy. She heard him coming and on turning and seeing that it was him she geeted him with a smile, "Ah, Adonis. What brings you to Shangri-La?" Adonis didn't say a word, instead he stepped up to her and put an arm around her waist before she could step back. His face was gentle as he took his free hand and stroked her cheek, "I've come here for you," he said softly. Cybele looked at him, slightly mystified. She put her arm out to try and push him away a bit, "Adonis, what-?" Adonis cut her off, kissing her with a thoroughness which bellied his loneliness in the years since he had lost his wife in the elemental wars. All the little signs came into place, all the little attentions he had paid which she had just dismissed because he was a widower. Yes I know it's mushy and totally not like me because I hate romance novels, but one day while I was finishing plotting out my story I realized that all the things I had done with Cybele had gone unrequited, and then I realized that I had Adonis sitting around as a widower. ::mentally tack on happy ending:: The End. And I know he's not stroking her cheek in the picture. I was having a hard time drawing him in general(shows doesn't it?) and I just decided to leave that out and make life easier, don't hurt me! ::runs and hides from Adonis's fans in drawing class:: Done in mechanical pencil alone, odd for me, ne?
