The wind tosses her hair around her face—long, tangled chestnut curls. Vanilla and peach. Home.

Her dress clings to her hips and knees. Lucky.

I know every hidden dimple and mark. One—the strawberry-shaped blossom—is right below her right hip. My favorite.

I roll her name off my tongue. Futile.

Her voice floats away. "I'm sorry."
