I pulled his body toward mine and held his face in my hands, soaking it up for one last time, I ran my finger down his strong jaw and his dimple in his chin, I smiled to myself, it was my favorite feature on his face. I would miss him, I would miss this face, his strength and his smell. I closed my eyes and kissed his dark red lips breathing every little bit of this memory in. This was the kiss I had been waiting for all my life. The kiss that made total sense but also broke my heart into thousand pieces knowing I may never meet his lips again. The kiss that proved the system wrong, we didn't need to be matched to our soulmate, forced by technology. Time didn't wait for love, it didn't need to, we could find it all by our selves.
