Things girls do that are cute:
-talk to each other while they’re in separate showers (such as in dorm room showers)
-always share food
-crinkle their noses when they laugh

he’s lost everything and the world as he knows it is destroyed, when he
realizes what happened, what she did, what

her. For what he thought she was. For what he still misses.
She comes to see him after, armed and ready and so he couldn’t
have killed her anyway but it still shamed him, years later, that all he could
think to say was:
“But I loved you.”
She laughs again and he would love to say it was different
from before, that it was darker and sinister and that she was at least acting on
that Tuesday and the months of Tuesdays since.
It isn’t. It is the exact same. Somehow that makes the
