Reddish Reddish Beauty

A story of a beautiful place where two souls meet, surprisingly.

Kate was going through fields of red roses. The leaves of the surrounding trees were red. The grass she was walking on was also red. A mild red color with a mixture of little white appeared on clouds in the sky. The mountains were made of red soil. Wherever she saw, it was reddish reddish beauty. It was not too dark red; it was also not too light red; it was a mixture of more red and less pink, and this combination was showing a very awesome kind of reddish reddish beauty.

She didn’t know where she was because she never visited this place. It was a different kind of universe where she was. The wind was so light and peace-giving. The atmosphere was filled with different kinds of fragrances. And that reddish reddish beauty, it was making her feel like a soul filled with beauty, made of beauty. She was wondering who decorated this place with such elegance and care.

“That world was never my home. I belong here with this reddish reddish beauty,” she said to herself.

All of her life, it was her dream to be in the kind of place where she was right now. Then she saw a bunch of red grapes hanging on the branch of a tree. She plucked some grapes and put them into her mouth. She felt they were tastier than any other thing she ever ate when she was in her world. As she took a step ahead, it began raining. But it was not the rain of water, it was a rain of red roses. Yes, cute red roses were coming from the sky and falling where she was.

“What kind of place is this? Am I in a dream?” she asked herself and then she heard a voice,

“Kate, it is not your dream. You always imagined and dreamt of such a place where you are right now, where reddish reddish beauty is omnipresent. I was always with you, seeing your mind, reading your thoughts. Your soul was always here. And now you are completely here. It is your gift because the ones who never give up on their imagination see the light of the day. You belong here. It is your new home. This reddish reddish beauty is yours.”

For a few seconds, there was complete silence. And then, a tear formed in her deep eyes, and then a tear fell on her cheek. At that moment, a girl appeared in front of her. When she saw it, she burst into tears. The girl ran towards her and hugged her with full strength.

With teary eyes and cries, she said,

“My sister, my sister Alice. I knew we would meet again. Your death was just a pause, not an ending to our connection.”

“When we truly love someone, no power, not even death, can take that person away from us. I knew I was in your heart and we will meet again. This reddish reddish beauty is the place I built here for you because I knew that one day, we will meet and I wanted to give you a gift,” said Alice.

They looked at each other. There was nothing but pure love that was shining in their eyes. This place where reddish reddish beauty was present, where both Kate and Alice were present, this place was heaven.
