He was at peace. Just being next to her soothed him in a different way!

He smiled serenely.

They sat together on their favourite park bench, holding hands and breathing in the smell of the wet soil.

If he had to paint a portrait of perfection, this moment would fill his canvas!

But she had a different kind of worry etched on her face.

He – What’s wrong? Why the wrinkled forehead?

She spoke hesitantly.

She – Just thinking!

He – About what?

She – Are you sure you want to marry me? I hope you know what you’re signing up for!

He couldn’t help but laugh at her adorableness!

He – Adventure! I’m signing up for adventure.

Suddenly, he held her face and kissed her passionately. He didn’t care about the people in the park making faces and the kids giggling at this public display of affection.

All he cared about was how much he loved her.

Even the endless portraits he had made of her didn’t do justice to his love.

So what she couldn’t see the brown of her hair or the green of her eyes? So what all she saw was the grey in the painter’s endless paintings?

This was love!

No kind of color blindness could steal this away from him!
