Light shone down on you warming your skin. It was you and your husbands first anniversary and you had surprised him with a trip to Kansas. Their state flower was the sunflower so you thought he would love it.
Right now the two of you were lying in a field of sunflowers enjoying the warm summer air.
Podsolnechnik, Ivan cooed into your ear. You shifted yourself so that you were facing Ivans chest.
You smiled at him brushing some of his hair out of his face. Hmm?
Its so warm, he whispered pulling you closer. Thank you.
It was nothing, you said kissing him on the cheek. I knew you would love The Sunflower State.
He nodded and kissed your forehead. Coming to America seemed like the most unromantic vacation at first.
You agreed. Ivan, I want this vacation to last forever. You settled your head on his chest, Its perfect, just you and me
and a whole field of sunflowers to ourselves.
Da, he said. He took your left hand in his examining your wedding bands. The best day of my life happened a year ago.
Mine too. You giggled, And my mother thought you were a sycopath.
You turned to look at him, Ivan?
Ivan laughed, you joined him. Ivan was completely and utterly harmless to you or anyone else that didnt tick him off.
I love you, you said embracing him and kissing him on the lips.
YA tozhe lyublyu tebya , moya podsolnechnika, he whispered back kissing you. (I love you too, my sunflower)
You blushed, Ivan. And sat up.
You turned redder, I
He sat up and kissed your bare shoulder, What?
What is it moy podsolnechnika (my sunflower), he asked kissing you on the shoulder again.
That, you said, whenever you call me that I get all fuzzy in the head and I-.
Ivan silenced you with a kiss on the lips, But its true, youre my sunflower. My light. My warmth. Without you I dont live.
You felt your heart melt, Ivan. I love you so much!
I love you too, my sunflower.
