She curled her hair behind her ear and quietly brushed up her feet into her arms. She tilted her head very very slightly. And there was a sadness in her that suddenly jolted me. Because all she wanted of me were these small moments. And if I could go back I would give her my entire life. 

And then she said,”It’ll be fun.” And she smiled sweetly.
