Have caressed my face, we looked at each other deeply: we have tried again to go down.
We shyly smiled each other. You have gently took me in your arms and while you have done those few stairs, I have stared you and delicately I’ve slide my hand in your shirt. Your heart was still beat fast, while your eyes didn’t wanted break away to me.
In the apartment there was a magical atmosphere, and each time we were sharing even the most tiny glance, it was as if it was explode some kind of energy, and has wrapped us: we were enveloped by something incredibly beautiful.
You has approached to me and you have whispered me: “Each day with you, it’s the most beautiful of my life.”
It was the same for me.
After a long glance in silence, where we said us everything, you have sighed: “Pyr…”
I’ve nodded, taking something to eat, and together we went out the apartment.
The day was delicately warm. A rainbow was framing, the Burn Valley from far.
We settled on the little stairs, looking at around us.
Pyr has immediately lifted his face toward us, stretching himself, and with a slow walk, he was approached to us.
He didn’t say nothing: we have caressed him.
We were about to speak, but Pyr knew already our question, and he turned his face, toward the Burn Valley.
“It’s from there, I have to start to tell you everything.”
We looked at each other, and we held back the breathe till he did start to speak.
His blind eyes seemed shine on by an own light.
“I wandered in the Burn Valley when the great force of the Nothing has stroke. I have tried to fight it but, little by little. it made me blind. The homeless, and the woman of the mountain, has took care of me…. I’m able to see… ” – “How is it possible?” We asked at the same time, incredulous.
Pyr, before to continue has waited for a moment: I sighed: “…. your eyes… ” – “My eyes can be misleading. I saw The Nothing for an interminable time when I’ve fought against it.
If the homeless and the woman of the mountain didn’t had healed me, I wouldn’t be here for you.”
We were astonished, and occasionally we looked at each other.
“How they healed you?” I asked.
“They have tried to pulled out all what I had see thought The Nothing, but they have failed. But then they were been able to change all the dark light I’ve seen, in this…” And in that moment that Pyr have opened his eyes for a tiny moment, the darkest light has become something marvellous.
From the most dangerous thing to the powerful and beautiful light, but even the shortest.
“The woman and the homeless have done their best: I can release of this light little by little: if would I release all in one time, I could, even die. But I’m sure i can help you” indicating me.
We looked at each other, breathless.
You looked at Pyr said: “I’ve promised it her… .”
I looked at you, holding back the breathe.”
