Chapter 25: 'It just sort of happened.' (28/7/17)

'Shiho?'

Sherry's head brushed against Gin's chest. He tightened his embrace around her waist.

'Yes?'

'Out of curiosity – how is it that you fell in love with me?'

Sherry stirred under the sheets.

'I don't know. It just sort of happened.'

Gin grinned and looked her in the eye.

'That's the laziest answer you could give me. You know, right?'

Sherry laughed. She stretched and threw her arms over his shoulders.

'And you? How is it that you fell in love with me?'

'I don't know. I just sort of happened.'

Sherry laughed again. Gin joined her and placed a kiss on her forehead.

Gin and Sherry's naked bodies pressed against each other. On the nearest bedside table, an alarm clock signaled the time. Little remained before they should part. In the meantime, they would make sure to enjoy being together.

Few days later, Akemi Miyano would die.
