He had found that little spot for the first time, and she had told him how she had caught herself on a branch when she slipped from an old oak in the La Bouf garden when she was nine. She then flushed, gave a small giggle, and related how embarrassed she had been of the scar after the wound had closed. The then bright pink line seemed as attention-grabbing as Lottie's pink dresses, and she'd worn long sleeves for a full year just to hide it, despite the Louisiana heat.

There were more little marks here and there, and when he closed his eyes he was sure he could paint the perfect picture of her in his mind, down to the tiniest freckle.

Both his eyes and fingers travelled from the scar on her elbow to the freckle on her right hip to the growing bump on her abdomen. He lay down behind her, pulling her back to his chest, his left arm thrown over her body, his hand stroking her stomach.
