Bonus drabble for the prompt “blind,” based on my characters from Carbon.
It’s daylight when I wake. I can’t see this, but I know it. Just as I can’t see you, but I know you’re there. I hear your breathing and your soft snores.
I reach out and find your face inches from mine, and feel it with my fingertips. A straight and creased brow: indicative of a worrier. A roman nose: stubborn and fiercely independent. A heavy upper lip: a teller of truths.
But I knew all that already. Even last night when you told me you love me.
That’s unfortunate for both of us.
My love is only for sale.
