“Do you ever think about the future?” Richie asks.
“Yes,” you reply, then pause. “I think about it a lot.”
Richie wants to ask if he’s in it, your future, but he can’t find the sounds under his tongue when he looks at you. You’re staring at the night sky with such vigor, eyes tracing the unseen constellations. The stars’ light reflect in your eyes.
“What do you think about?” He asks instead.
You seem to think about it for a minute, then smile a little. “I don’t know,” you say. “I just… I wanna go on adventures with the person I love, y’know? I wanna travel the world and do stupid shit. Wanna get kicked out of a Walmart. Wanna go to Mexico and feel my feet in the sand. I wanna live.”
Richie’s been in love with you since you were thirteen, but looking at you now, underneath the pale moonlight, he doesn’t think he could love you more. You turn your head to look at him and he notices how your hair is wild against the blanket you’re laying on. Richie grins as an idea pops into his head and gets up from the ground.
