We flew throughout the night and only rested on a cloud to gaze at the beautiful sunrise. It was only until we shot through the atmosphere and were then in space that I realised how far Peter’s home was from mine. Peter shot me a mischievous smile and when he turned around to look where he was going again we started travelling at the speed of light. We looked like shooting stars as fairydust fell off of us as we raced through the stars. Once we started to slow down I noticed a small orange planet glowing in the distance. Surrounding it was a ring of gold dust of what I can only suspect to be fairydust. This must be Neverland. I have never seen such a beautiful thing in all my life.

He had became more than a friend to me, he had became the one I thought about all day and all I could think of as I fell asleep. I did not tell Peter of my wish because he was always talking about a girl named Tiger Lily and I would not get in the way of his happiness. Well the night before my birthday Peter took me down to the small ravine where we used to throw rocks and see whose would reach to bottom first. He took my hands in his; our callouses rubbing against each other and then Peter began to speak.
“ Wendy, now that are to come of age tomorrow, I shall like to announce my feelings towards you. I have known you since you were not yet even thirteen. A young girl who sewed a shadow back on to a boy who creeped into your house in the middle of the night. I know I have not always been the kindest of people. I have used you as a target when my anger boils up to the point where I cannot contain it. You just stood there and took it. When Tigerlily was close to death from a crocodile bite you held me in your arms as I cried. I love you Wendy Moira Angela Darling and I always have. I want to spend the rest of my life with you and I know that one life in Neverland is forever in another. Marry me Wendy and we shall live the most spectacular life filled with pirates and Indians where no one has to tell us that we are too young or naive. Marry me Wendy and we shall rule Neverland together!” All I can do not to scream with joy is to look into those coffee coloured eyes that are bursting with light as Peter gets more excited with every word he speaks. He truly is a wondrous being, Peter, you can tell everything he is thinking through his eyes. Most would say its a weakness, I say its a strength.
“Peter Pan, before you give yourself a stroke please calm yourself down!” You can see the light drain from his eyes as he realises I am speaking.
“I truly am speechless at what you say Peter, and all I can think is ‘Why did you not announce you feelings sooner?!’ The light in his eyes returns as I speak.
“Yes, I love you too Peter. I always have; did you know I pretended I was asleep the nights you came in through the window just so I could stare at you and those magnificent eyes of yours.”
“ I know. Because I did the same thing when you fell asleep in the willow tree every night for six years. I watched the way your brunette hair fell across your face, and the way the moonlight shines off your soft face like starlight.” the thought of him watching me sleep makes me blush. “I love the way you blush at the most innocent of things and the way your eyebrows weave together as you puzzle over questions you do not know the answer to. Marry me Wendy.”
The wedding came two weeks later, I wore a dress woven of white lilies and silk stolen from a house in London. My hair was pinned up with pearls Peter found in a chest in a hidden cave. Everyone in Neverland attended. As I walked up the aisle Peter turned around and his face lit up, and...
