Lizzy watched the rolling waves stretching as far as the eye could see. She stood on the stern of the ship The Phantom, she had never been so happy as now.
She had told William she did not want a honeymoon, she only wanted to be with him on his ship.
William came up behind her and asked softly,
"How do you like your new home?" Lizzy took his hand in her own and said with a smile,
"I like it very much indeed."
Lizzy laughed, a laugh as gentle and tender as a morning dew, "Think about how silly we both were when we first met."
William joined in her laughter, "How hard I tried to speak what I thought, but it came out so rudely."
"Nonsense," She disagreed, "I was so prideful."
The two looked at each other, eyes shinning with happiness.
"Now we shall be together for ever." She whispered.
"Yes." William agreed.
They stood hand in hand, content.
