I think I'll miss you forever, like the stars miss the morning sky
-Lana Del Rey, Summertime Sadness
It's after school (not really, we left after lunch) and Myles and I are casually walking around, blending in with the old crowd.
"So," Myles says. "What do you want to do?"
What now? "I don't know, I'm not allowed to go back to the house at this time so I guess I can stay with you."
"It's the day, right?" I slowly nod my head. Myles can read me like a book.
"Can I stay with you tonight? I'm scared."
I'm scared of the monster. It haunts me inside, devouring me as I cry.
He holds me in his arms. Suddenly, I see stars. Love stars. He stares into my eyes, hazel has never looked this good.
We stop. Right in the middle of the street.
This moment. This one. Right here. Is unexplainable. I am so involved with my life, tangled up in it, and I know that, I do. But, for the first time, I can see others. Just one. Myles.
Myles is mine. I'm Myles'.
My phone suddenly rings, I look at the ID. Jill.
"I heard what happened," She sounds tired, annoyed. "Come back now. I know you're with Myles."
I hang up. "I have to go. I'll call you, promise." I kiss him.
