"It's a party, and you're both talking to other people, and you're laughing and shining, and you look across the room and catch each other's eyes but not because you're possessive or it's precisely sexual, but because that is your person in this life. And it's funny and sad but only because this life will end, and it's this secret world that exists right there in public, unnoticed, that no one else knows about. It's sort of like how they say that other dimensions exist all around us, but we don't have the ability to perceive them. That's what I want out of a relationship. Or just life, I guess."
