    Summary

    'Shelby exhales and takes a seat on the ledge next to Toni, close enough so she can feel the warmth of her skin, but careful not to touch.

    “We need to talk,” Shelby says after a moment.

    Toni closes her eyes. There is it. Those four faithful words she knows the meaning of all too well. The same words her mother uttered to her that night when she told her she’d be leaving. Those same words foster parent after foster parent would set her down to tell her when the time came and they didn’t want her anymore. Those same words Regan had whispered to her the night they broke up. Yes, Toni knows those words very well indeed.'

    Summary

    April turns her attention back to the debate to distract herself from the way the sound of Sterling's laugh sets her blood on fire. 

    “Do you think any of these imbeciles even know how to craft a comprehensive piece of legislation?”

    Sterling rolls her eyes. “Call me when you’re elected to congress, then.”

    “Don’t worry, I will.”

    “Ooh, can’t wait.”

    April knows that Sterling is being sarcastic, but there’s a shine in her eyes and her mouth is still frustratingly smiling and God, April wants.
    ___

    The long, arduous, and unexpected journey of how April Stevens fell in love with political organizing. And also Sterling Wesley.
