73 Picture of a shooting star at dusk

“You see it?” 

Naomi smiled to herself.  “I see it.  It’s beautiful.”

“Not as beautiful as you,” James responded

Naomi flapped a hand at him.  “Oh, shush.”

He propped himself on an elbow, taking his face from the sky to look at her.  “It’s true.”

Her smile broadened.  “You’re just flattering me.”

“I’m not.”  James leaned in closer.  “I swear.”

“On what?”

This time, he smiled too.  “On my life.”

Naomi sat straight up in bed with a start.  Her hands groped in the dark for James.  It took too long to realize he wasn’t there, would never be again.

Naomi Williams and James Knox.  Original characters.
