“Let’s go into the creepy glowing room, you said.” She grabbed a handful of the green translucent wires hanging from the ceiling and tossed them behind her shoulder, smacking him in the face.
“Agh-!” He rubbed his sore cheek. “Those wires actually hurt, you know.”
Chuckling, he slipped his fingers through hers and took off in a run.
He pulled her into a room as dark as the one they just left, save for a single pulsing green light in the center. With a snap of his fingers, the room came alight. The green wires glowed and twinkled around them like falling stars and they were the ones caught in the middle of the universe.
“My whole life has been one dark room, and I’ve spent it fumbling around looking for the way out. Then you walked into the room like starlight and you lit it up a little piece at a time. Will you always be my light when the universe goes dark?”
