Ever since she met Willow, Tara’s heart has been in freefall, soaring weightless where nothing, not even gravity can bring it down. It’s a giddy, euphoric feeling, a freedom she’s never known; Willow is her bright star and Tara is in willing orbit around her.
For the first time in her life she understands what it is to be loved, to have someone look at her, really see her for who she is, making no demands, just cherishing her.
At times she wonders whether she deserves something so precious, but then Willow smiles and Tara’s doubts fade.
This is real.
