First Person POV:
I could feel the pulse of the fire even before I could see the flame. It’s very essence was my life’s blood, a part of my being even as it consumed. I know one day its burn would end me, but tonight, I was safe. She was here with me, keeping the pulsing flame at bay with her liquid calm. It took only one glance into her blue eyes for my anxiety to melt away. I trusted her as a child trusted his parent to guide him. I knew she would never lead me astray, even when I fought against the path she lead me on. However, one day, I knew I’d look back with regret if I followed my original course and ignored my guiding star.
