We were on the beach, celebrating with my family and friends.
The outdoor ambiance made the overnight event enticing and fun.
As soon as people went home and family and friends slept, my beau slipped a message that we'd meet at dawn.
The alarm clock woke me up. It was 5 AM. Mama and Papa were still sleeping.
I hurried out from the beach house. I saw my beau standing and waiting for me to go out.
We went to the shore, secluded, with the night sky filling with endless stars. The cold breeze touched our cheeks as he was holding my hands. The dawn wasn't breaking yet. We sat down on a nearby brick bench. His eyes sparkled. It was a memorable moment as we talked about how the day went and how much fun we had.
I played some music on my phone. We sang, from Bruno Mars' Lazy Song to Perfect Two by Auburn, until he hinted for us to stand.
He put his hands around my waist and I put mine on his shoulders. Suddenly, the song went from pop to mellow, until we realized it was a song by Barbra Streisand. It was "I Finally Found Someone".
At that moment, it seems like the world stopped spinning. We were under the moonlight, with the sound of the waves chanting on the background while we did a slow, couple dance.
We managed to complete the whole song as the sky beamed its first light and with the sound of the seagulls echoed through the horizon.
We sat down, with flushed cheeks and feeling some butterflies in my stomach.
It was my first time, but an unforgettable experience that I will never forget.
