Sometimes, it is the simplest things that take the longest to learn.
There is something awkward in it, in the seemingly so mundane, in the way it is both achingly familiar and unknown. (Countless breaths, in and out and catch and choke, and she realises that she’d never quite gotten the hang of it til now.)
You never understand just how deep emptiness runs until it is past, and you look back at the chasm with an unbiased eye.
But there is no looking back, not now. Not for her.
Not for them.
This time, there is only looking forward, and she has no idea what the turning of calendar pages will punctuate.
(And she’s not quite sure if it’s only the potentials that make her shiver with delight, but she is certain nothing in the future could be as beautiful as waking up with these girls at her sides.)
