"3 years, 1 month, 1 week and 6 days since I’d seen daylight. One-fifth of my life."
"98,409,602 seconds since the heavy, steel door had fallen shut and sealed us off from the world. Imprisoned us."
"Only 2 minutes since we'd run out of food."
Every member of our little group was haunted by memories of their past, but we never talked about it. The future was scary enough. We didn’t need the past to worry about.
"Joshua shook his head like a wet dog, sending droplets of water flying my way. I threw up my hands to shield myself.
“I thought you liked rain.” His cheeky grin made me want to punch him. I tried to hide my smile."
Our kiss tasted of blood and tears. Of rain and dirt. Of pain and relief. But more than anything, it was a promise. An oath to never let anything happen to the other.
