"I... love you!" Tora was not even aware she had said the words, and yet they came to her lips.
Miklos drew in his breath. Then he was kissing her again, kissing her with long, slow, passionate kisses that made her quiver in his arms, and she knew it was the most perfect and wonderful thing that had ever happened.
Then when she felt that he carried her into a celestial world where there was only music of the spheres and the fragrance of the flowers did he say, and his voice was very low, deep and unsteady:
"How can you have done this to me? And yet I knew the moment I saw you you were what I had been looking for all my life."
"That is... what I feel too," Tora said, "and if I looked away you would not... be here." She thought she saw an expression of pain in his eyes and she said without thinking: "I cannot lose you! How can I say goodbye and never see you again?"
