Sapphic September 2021

Chapter Text

Alexis looks ethereal in the glow from the rising sun streaming through the motel window. Her eyes are sparkling, and her hair is a golden waterfall spilling over her collarbones. Rachel can’t help but admire the pinks and oranges and yellows from the sun painting rainbows across her skin.

“It’s morning.” Alexis’ voice is soft.

“Can’t believe we’ve been talking all night,” Rachel murmurs.

She’s warm and relaxed in a way she hasn’t felt in years. Yesterday marked the end of an important chapter in her life, so now — Rachel smiles — maybe it’s time for the start of something new.
