     FallingCover“It’s on,” I say, turning to look back in front of me, my eyes focused on the two doors leading into the cafeteria. This step is so amazingly huge– I wish someone in my inner circle were here to witness it. i know that discouraging myself with Nate is the only reason I’m now pushing the doors open and stepping inside the noisy room full of tables and chairs and strangers. My lungs grow even smaller and tighter when I do, but my feet keep moving.

Yes, friends help you heal. But Nate is stronger than that. And he’s bringing back pieces of me that I thought were dead for good.

Hey, guys. Sorry we’re late. Rowe got a phone call that her ointment was ready. We had to pick it up. That’s the one that helps with the...burning…right?” Nate fake whispers, holding my gaze to see how I handled his challenge. I fight against myself, knowing how badly my eyes want to show shock, and my cheeks want to flare up with embarrassment. I used to be good at this. And I think I can do this again. I remember friends.

 

–  Rowe, Chapter 8
This Is Falling
by Ginger Scott

 

I love Rowe and I love how she always looks forward, despite everything that has happened to her. In this particular scene, its Nate she looks up to. Nate  does more than heal, he brings her back to life. That life she is striving to live again.
