Though the sun had long since set, the sky was ablaze with a red-orange glow that would surely make the daylight jealous. Bonfires were lit along the river’s edge and throughout the green, and myriad sparks filled the air overhead like a cloud of dancing fireflies. Though all about him the night was alive with the rhythmic pronouncements of drums and the airy laughter and singing of those nearby, he lingered just at the edge of the light alone. He watched the villagers, his friends, his neighbors, as they partook of the festivities, often linked arm in arm as they wove spirals around first one bonfire, then another. They beckoned to him as they passed. “Join us,” he heard them call with the very breath of temptation. With a head shake, he declined the invitation, time and again, preferring instead to continue his solitary trek.
It was after such a renunciation that he caught sight of her, only a glimpse as he turned to avoid the revelers. Her pale skin was set alight by the glow of the bonfires, and her long, brown hair was gilded with a coppery red that rivaled any flame. He found himself drawn to her, and as he approached, she turned to meet his eyes with her own, a gaze painted by every green promise the earth had ever made.
