A Snippet of The Nostrum Conspiracy
“What do you think marriage is?” asked Marguerite.
The lawyer in me spoke up and said, “It’s a legal binding agreement to share one’s life and worldly goods with another person.”
Marguerite raised an eyebrow, but said nothing. Instead she waited for more. I felt like there was something better inside of me to give. It was something more real than the legal bullshit I had just spouted. I swallowed. Marguerite wanted more than legalese and Ginny was looking crushed by my comments.
“It’s completion,” I said. “Like closing a circle. Ginny completes me.”
Marguerite nodded her approval.
“Dude,” said Eric softly.
Camo Girl dabbed at a tear in the corner of her eye.
Pony Tail gripped my shoulder and said softly, “Yes.”
Ginny closed the gap between us in two quick steps. At first I thought she was going to throw her arms around me, but she stopped just short and held me with her eyes.
I liked what I saw in Ginny’s eyes and would have been content to gaze into them, but slowly she stretched a hand to my cheek and caressed it ever so lightly with the back of her finger tips. A spark of electricity crackled between us and some of the tension I had been carrying around for the last few days melted away.
Ginny’s breath quickened. In anticipation of her touch, my breathing matched pace with hers. I wasn’t disappointed. She curled her hand behind my neck and then pulled me into a kiss. I had never experienced anything like it. The kiss filled an ocean of loneliness with love and I knew that I would never be the same.
