Blink of Words

The two lived together as if everything was an adventure. A joy continues. Even going to the grocery store together, or the baker was fantastic. Whatever nonsense made ​​them laugh. Carefree laughter. Do not you ever worried about anything because they just wanted to be with each other. Without ever separating.

I due uniti vivevano come se tutto fosse una bella avventura. Una gioia continua. Anche andare insieme dal droghiere o dal fornaio era fantastico. Qualunque sciocchezza li faceva ridere. Risate spensierate. Non si preoccupavano mai di nulla perché volevano soltanto stare l’uno con l’altra. Senza separarsi mai.
