Was Miah wearing a costume? She remembered the name of the man from the film, and she knew she'd even said it a few hours ago -- watching him choose his clothing -- but now it slipped her mind. If no one knew it was a costume, or what it was a costume of, did that make it a costume still? She debated this as the alcohol stung her throat, her tastebuds.
"I don't know... Don't know why I drink sometimes," she told Miah, making a small face and pinching the inside of his arm. Easiest person to love, Lo.
Easiest person to love.
She poured more instead of asking why. "You've always been easy... Easy to love, easy to... Talk to. All of it. Reallyyyyy." The words were earnest, happy.
Love, love, love. What were the next words to that song, anyway? Why was everything so silly? Ellie had to keep thinking of happy things, or she'd start to remember that they weren't always.
