x365: 41 of 365: zareen a.

For the first few weeks of our relationship, you refused to tell me your last name. When I found out one recess, I pulled back your hair and whispered it in your ear. Sure you smiled, but I missed your hand coming round to smack me on the side of my head. You were awesome.

How long did this romance last? Until you found out her middle name and she stabbed you?

Ye gods. I never found out her middle name.

She also hit me with her hair once. She had heavy, thick ringlets of hair which, when wet, would turn into ropes. She could whip her neck around and snap me in the face, which she thought was funny. And I would laugh too, because she was, despite those habits, extremely good company. And really, really beautiful.
