Silver defines Steel.

An established relationship story.

Written April 2006. Word count: 100.



Steel: 'A hard, strong grey, or bluish-grey alloy of iron with carbon and usually other elements.


Used as a symbol or embodiment of strength and firmness.


Nerves of steel.


Mentally prepare oneself to do or face something difficult.'


These all describe Steel perfectly.


Yet my Steel is far more than that.


The Steel that fits the explanation is the Steel everyone else sees.


My Steel shows me his other face.


He shows me his purity. His gentleness. His flexibility. Even his insecurity.


The Steel makes the difficult decisions.


My Steel shows me how what it costs him to do so.
