The buzzer in Jessica’s room awakens Didi before she’s really ready to get up. Her arm is in an awkward position, but Sue’s sleeping head is laying on it, so she takes the pain in order that her lover will get a couple more hours of slumber.
She smiles to herself and studies Sue’s face. You’re so beautiful. Even with your hair all messed up like that. Even in my old “away” jersey. She tries to gently reposition Sue’s haphazard body parts. She gives up and lies still.
I love you so much. Even when you’re tangled up in blue.
