Abnormally Strange Gifts

The wind blew gently stirring the hot summer air. Luna took a step forward grasping Haru's pale hands in her own tan ones. She didn't dare look into his eyes in fear of drowning in the metallic pools framed by his black and white hair. "Haru, I have something I wanted to ask you." She said nervously, and deep blush dancing on her cheeks and tip of her nose. Then she made her first mistake. She looked up and their eyes met. She stared into the warm gray optics, lost in the swirls and lines. Her blush deepened and her lungs started to burn. Wait her lungs? Then it hit her. /Breathe!/ She thought, taking a deep breath. She tore her eyes away to continue. Taking a step back she got down onto one knee. "I know this is something the guy normally does," She rambled. "But I feel like if I don't say something soon I'm going to explode!" There was a gush of wind as she said this almost as if nature was seconding her statement. The wind picked up her long black hair dramatically blowing it in her face.She reached up and irritably removed it from her face to continue. "Will you-" She cut her self off, how could she say this to him? The love of her life. What if he said no? Her mind began to run all over the place frantically worrying over the whole situation. No, she was going to do this. She looked up into his eyes and his confused expression and blurted out, "Will you marry me?"
