    A retelling of Ari and Dante from Dante's POV. Not sure at this point how strictly I'll stick to original dialogue and precise content of the book's chapters...it's a mystery to me we shall soon discover. :)

    Summary

    “How can p-people be so cr-cruel?”

    Ari wishes he had the answers. He wishes he could give Dante some kind of closure, but he isn’t able to. People were just cruel. People were hateful. And it was almost like Dante was too naive to see that. Dante wanted to see the good in everyone. It was a beautiful thing, but it made things like this harder for Dante to understand. They were hard to understand as it was.

    “I wish it hadn’t been you, Dante.” Ari murmurs. “I wish it had been someone who deserved it.”

    Summary

    Legs lifts her head to look at both of them. She lays her head back down on Dante’s thigh and closes her eyes, grunting tiredly. Ari considers moving to go make breakfast or something, but he can’t force himself to move. Dante is so warm and he looks so comfortable…

    They’ll be fine just laying there for a few more minutes.

    Or a few more hours.
