2 Works in The East (2013)
They still live with her, all of them. She dreams them: Doc, Tess, Luca, Eve, Benji, Izzy. She can still smell the house they lived in, the slightly earthy smell, and the charred smell of the ribbed walls. She remembers the way the wind rippled through the trees just outside the house, deeper into the woods where she’d kissed Benji for the first time, the somber and eerie melody made by the tree over Izzy’s grave. She remembers the weight of Doc’s arm around her shoulders, the softness of Tess’s hands, and the fire in Luca’s eyes, the sweetness in the way he’d look at you if he knew you were hurt.
“Have you been with—women before?” Sarah asks once they’ve both calmed down slightly, though she’s still breathing unsteadily. It comes out sort of tangled, coming out in pants of breath and gasps in between their kissing.
