He entered the temple passing through the shadow of the arched entrance. Lit torches lined the hall and a shaft of light shown down from oculus in the roof. It shown down on the main attraction of this temple. She sat on a relatively simple throne or possibly it only seemed simple compared to her. Her hair as red and beautiful as autumn leafs shone beautifully in the sunlight. Her stark white gown was just barely lighter than her beautiful pale white skin. He approached her his hands holding his offering against his chest. He came closer and closer his whole body trembling as he looked at her coming up and kneeling in front of the Goddess. He looked up at her smiling and reaching his hands out holding his offering. A small carved wooden fox that he had slowly painstakingly carved from a very rare hard wood from across the country. As it hit the light it glittered and shone small bits of a glittery yellow color in every bit of the wood, "For you my Goddess." The goddess looked down at it the smile that was already gracing her face deepening and widening as she reached out pulling it from his hands making him tremble as he felt her fingers brush his hands. "It is beautiful... You made this yourself?" Rakai blushed nodding gently, "Yes my goddess...." She stood from the throne kneeling down to kiss his cheek gently the single touch of her lips on his skin making him shiver and seeming to make the whole room, the whole world seem warmer and brighter. "Thank you Rakai I shall cherish this..."
A beautiful picture I got for Kimmy as a random gift. I absolutely love how this turned out especially Rakai's offering to her.
