“Skye,” he said fiercely. “Listen to me. When this is all over, when we’ve found a way to end this we will be together.”
“How can you know that? How can you be so sure of yourself all the time?”
He pulled me into him so fast I didn’t see it coming, and I threw my arms around his neck and kissed him. He held on to me, tightly, as the sun dipped quietly below the mountains and the darkness rose to meet u and the wind blew in through the open window, gusting up under my wings, which had unfurled in Asher’s arms, and lifting us both off the ground. It was the kind of kiss you read about in books, the kind they write songs about. A kiss that told the story of us. The whole messy, complicated story.
He let go of me, letting me fall, gently, to the ground.
“Because if you think I’m giving up on that,” he said, brushing hair out of my face, “you’re crazy.”
