EXCERPT: Jade and Nepeta stared unblinking, glancing at each other only once (but it was a long look, seeking comfort, finding epiphany).
“Tell me your dreams,” Feferi continued, softer. She looked from girl to girl, licked her lips. “Confirm my suspicions. Indulge me. I’m greedy.”
“Paint, I need paint,” Nepeta gasped with widening, red-streaking eyes wet with tears of sadness, joy, confusion, bewilderment, love and need and hope. Almond shaped and green, green as deciduous forest leaves in April, glistening with rain; she must have seen God, or at the very least its ghost. Feferi gathered her in her arms and nuzzled her hair as she tried to focus on breathing, clawing softly at Feferi’s forearms. Feferi smiled and giggled, a breathy and beautiful sound that made Nepeta move to kiss the laughter out of her, to swallow the second-hand cheer. They looked like mother and child, like sisters, like lovers to Jade and she had to swallow twice before she was able to speak.
