Because at that moment, with the press of Rahim's lips to hers, with the touch of his tongue sending wildfire through her veins, she knew she would always be home here. With this boy. In this moment. In this time. And that her heart would never be lonely again.
I- Irsa took a careful breath to steady her words. I have felt alone for most of my life. Until you. She placed the shell on his chest. But I promise I won't feel alone anymore. I will never forget. She stood on shaky feet. I will always remember. I love you Rahim al-Din Walad . Thank you for loving me in return.
