Fade by Lisa McMann
In the evening, as they lie together in Cabel's bed, she knows it's time. Before she reads the green notebook, before what happens, happens, she needs to say what she feels. Because he is the only one who matters.
She practices in her mind.
Forms the words with her mouth.
Then tries them, softly, out loud.
"I love you, Cabe."
He's quiet, and she wonders if he's sleeping.
But then he buries his face in her neck.
