    Summary

    One can have a dream, baby.
    Two can make a dream so real.
    One can talk about being in love.
    Two can see how it really feels.

    One can wish upon a star.
    Two can make a wish come true, yeah.
    One can stand alone in the dark.
    Two can make a light shine through.
    -Frankie Gaye, Kim Weston

    Summary

    Daniela groans, blindly throwing an arm across her bed, half-asleep and vaguely considering hangover-induced arson just to make herself feel better. Her head throbs. She can only remember last night in bits and pieces; hands pressing into the curve of her back, linked arms and twin shot glasses, sharing a single lime chaser with… someone. Bright lights and brown eyes.

    “Oh, God,” she groans again.

    “Yes?” Her bed— not her bed— answers. Dani opens her eyes, blinking away the residual sleep. A mass of black hair peeks out from Daniela’s comforter, half of a familiar face.

    “Dani,” Carla whines, “my head hurts. And I don’t think I did my rosaries last night.”

    Carla shifts closer to Daniela, curling her body into Dani’s and resting her head against Daniela’s chest, eyelashes snapping closed as she fights off the sunlight filtering in through Daniela’s curtains.

    “Carla, mí amor?” Daniela says. “Why are we both naked?”

    Carla hums low in her throat, idly rubbing her forehead into Daniela’s chest. “Probably because we had sex?”

    “Ah. Bueno.”

    Summary

    Until Daniela, Heaven and true love seemed to lie on opposite ends of her existence, each tugging on a hand, but now, as time passes, she finds they’re closer than she could have ever thought, the kind of thing that could even be what brings them together in prayer after months of tears and questions of why she had to be made this way.

    It’s instance by instance that this realization comes to head, but each time, she finds herself caught off guard, finds herself floored at the notion that she might have discovered something holier than anything she ever thought possible before.

    (Or, there’s a lot of ways to pray. Five instances where Carla finds something holy.)
