She looked up to see a tall, slender figure approaching her, blood red eyes penetrating hers...but she didn't care...what was death to her now? Perhaps if she died, she would see her friend again...
"Lily!"
The voice was strong and full of life and as she turned and watched him running toward her, she remembered her reason for living...

 Suddenly, his mouth was on hers. His lips were caressing her lips, his hands were cupped around her face. All she could think about was the way his soft lips felt on hers, and the feel of his warm hands on her cheeks.

"What was that for?" she asked in shock.

He looked at her for a moment before tilting his head and saying simply, "I love you, Lily."
