FIRST PLACE... @TiramiSue84
Del’s always been this way - growing up with fairies in her garden and animals talking back to her, but that was different. Kid stuff. Right now, though, she’s wishing it were all true.
She lies there, completely still, until the moment is gone.
“I would’ve listened to you tell me about things you don’t think I think are important,” she says around the ache. “I would’ve played with the hair on your chest. I would’ve have kissed your shoulders, your neck and your lips. I would’ve done that thing you like – twice. I’d tell you all my secrets, Matty.”
He’d forgotten a suit way back in the closet when he moved out last week. She wasn’t supposed to be home.
