Read an Excerpt

She fell asleep under the tree. Kevin didn’t let go of her hand. She woke up after a short while, looking into the green leaves above. She blinked her eyes as light beamed down from the sky, finding its way through the tree branches up above. She turned her head, her vision still blurry with sleep. She looked into Kevin’s eyes. They were light hazel, almost gold, and his dark eyelashes were longer than any she had ever seen. His fingers fluttered on her soft hand as he ran them over her skin and intermingled her hand with his until they felt like only one.

“Hi,” he said.

“Can I ask you something?” she questioned.

“Of course,” he replied.

“Why did you defend us that day in the cafeteria?”

“To be honest, I wasn’t defending you. I was defending Michael.”

“But why did you when no one else did?”

“I guess you and I—we’re a dime a dozen, but Michael . . . he’s like that yellow leaf in a mix of green—one of a kind. I wasn’t going to let someone make him feel bad for it.”

Ann Marie leaned herself forward until she could feel Kevin’s breath against hers. Pressing her lips to his, she felt what could only be described as a shimmer. It started at the cusp of her lip and flowed like water surrounding her heart. Kevin looked back into her eyes as they lay under the sky.

“You know,” Kevin said, “when I was a kid, I had a bad stutter. Kids used to pick on me every day at school. One day, I came home crying, and I never forgot what my mom said. She told me that God doesn’t make mistakes. She said I was perfect, that it was special, that I was different from everyone else—one of a kind. I never forgot it.”
