just a fragment from my current work-in-progress. raw and unedited.

Hayat | in her voice | a woman’s monologue
I will tell her everything tonight.
Not because I need to justify my choices or defend them in any way, not because she deserves to know the truth, and not because I feel any need to tell someone. No. I will tell her everything tonight because she is my best friend, and because we’ve always told each other everything. Shared our secrets, our pain, laughter, blankets and pillows on the roof on summer nights, the utter horror of our first period, that first cough and head-spinning of a first cigarette. I will tell her everything tonight because I love her, and I want her friendship back in my life. Most of all, I miss the intimacy we shared.
