was dimming around us but when I pulled from his embrace, I could still see the
light and the love in his eyes. I could
also see the fear, fear that he had lost me, fear that he could lose me still. I stood, mesmerised by him. It began to rain. Droplets ran down his face and dripped off
the end of his nose. I couldn’t decipher
which were tears and which were raindrops, but by the timbre in his voice and
the shaking of his shoulders I’d guess it was about even.
“Liv, please tell me that we can work past this. Please. I feel like I can’t breathe without you.”
