I don’t believe I went too far.
I said I was willing.”

We have all had them in our lives, those people who have a light to them, a spark, an electrical current surprise. These are the people who push us a little farther, who challenge us, who make us open up parts of us that we did not even know existed. Sometimes they stay for a lifetime, sometimes they come and go in a flash; sometimes they are friends, lovers, strangers we share a seat on the train with, or a green-eyed beauty with a shock of dyed red hair who asks a question that has us reeling, and thinking for days after. They are part of our story, the pages that are loaded with the stuff of whispers and “I will always” remembers.

Some things only she knows.”
