“You’ll find someone perfect for you!” Katrina clasped Heather’s hand and gave it a squeeze as they walked the densely populated beach together.

“But you don’t understand the violation that is. I like who I am. I look forward to grad school, to writing, to my own place.”

“Cheers,” they whispered, smiling.
