She wakes up to find him still in her bed.

‘Not gonna lie, figured you’d be gone by now,’

she whispers. ‘This early? Besides, it’s the weekend

and I’d rather keep staring at you,’ he says. Smiling, she

gestures at her back as to remind him of something. ‘So

you used to have wings, my hair started to gray when I

was in the second grade,’ he tells her. ‘Doesn’t bother

you that-‘ ‘No, the fact that you shared that side of

yourself makes me love you even more,’ he says

as he grazes his fingers across the parallel

scars on her back. ‘You are beautiful.’
