Years after it happened, after the events that changed her -- changed all of them -- forged her into something stronger, Ludi and Nat took a rare sojourn into town for some shopping and a movie. They were also going for supplies, things to lay in store for the winter, and for the events that would come with the rebirth of spring. And oh yes, they were going to mail four very important letters.
Sara tried not to look too intently as Marigold unselfconsciously peeled her blouse off, and tied a bandana around her chest instead, baring her shoulders, and a vast expanse of midriff. She wished she could be that free. She wasn't supposed to notice such things. And she certainly didn't notice the way Ludi's plain white tank top molded itself around her lush curves, or the way the summer heat made her glow.
