They steal silently into the night, creeping on cat feet, shrouded in shadows.

"Shhh" she says, a breath upon the quiet air.

Like thieves in the darkness, they seek to steal a moment that is as precious as gold, as rare and bright as diamonds, or the stars that wink unseeing in the sky. Fingers dance, picking words like locks, to reveal the treasure they share.

"Here" he whispers, hand outstretched, finding hers.

She takes it and steps softly into his arms, two shadows blending into one.

A kiss explodes between them, silent detonation of will and need. Thieves they might be, but their treasure is worth the risk.
