When he looked into her dark eyes, and saw that her lips were poised between a laugh and silence, he learned the most important part of the language that all the world spoke – the language that everyone on earth is capable of understanding in their heart. It was love. Something older then humanity, more ancient then the desert. Something that exerted the same force whenever two pairs of eyes met, as had theirs here at the well.
