It had taken far longer than she’d expected to scrape the mound together, each breeze threatening to undo her work, but she’d been determined to gather every golden scrap she could find.

Waiting "Why are you here?" he asked, even though he knew the answer. "I'm waiting for you." Her heels clunked against the cabinet in a familiar rhythm. "I'll wait forever if I have to."
