    Summary

    "So we're gonna have peach pie and peach cobbler?" Idgie asked from the back doorway.

    Ruth paused, making her special Lord Give Me Strength face, then said patiently, "Some like one, some like the other."

    "I wonder how many people like both," Idgie asked with a wicked grin. "If they really love peaches they're gonna have a hard time deciding."

    Ruth gave her a look, then went back to writing out the menu.

    Summary

    Idgie sucked in a breath. Ruth grabbed her wrist and pulled her close. She clasped Idgie’s face between her hands and Idgie found herself close enough to see tiny flecks of olive in Ruth’s beautiful irises.

    “I’m sorry I ever left,” said Ruth.

    Idgie shook her head between Ruth’s hands.

    “I made peace with that already,” she said softly. “I’m not mad at you, Ruth.”

    Summary

    “Why don’t you just sleep like that?” she suggested, biting her lower lip and looking at Ruth with nothing but desire. Ruth felt her heart flutter. But she shooed Idgie away.

    “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled,” Ruth quoted as she picked up the shirt again. Idgie rolled her eyes and collapsed on her back, defeated.

    “It’s a little late for scripture. Especially in our bed.”

    I just rewatched this on blu ray and finished the novel (finally) and I'm a hot mess so I needed writing therapy. Enjoy!
