John smiled at himself as he finished the last few details. All this hard work was going to pay off, he knew it. He imagined Alexander's smiling face, his shining eyes, the kiss they'd share. He felt warm inside at the thought, to think it had really been ten years already. He put the finishing touch on his painting and giggled to himself at it. It brought back so many wonderful memories. He looked down at his hand and smiled at the ring there. He quickly wiped his eyes from gathering tears and took a last glance at the painting. Tomorrow.
