She watches you restlessly coerce your fingers together as she waits for the oven to ping. Her fingers ache for the ring she flushed down the toilet last night- you know nothing of the whimpers that have kept her awake, you’ve only learnt to believe that your scheduled cries are to blame. She has taken an off from work today that she already knows she cannot afford- but this evening is special, it has been a whole year since she found someone to call her own. It is the anniversary of home having finally found a meaning, and she wants the night to be just right- wants your introduction to the universe be like the fairytales she grew up believing.
