It was late when they arrived at her dorm and all the lights were out. She climbed out of the car, back out into the sharp frosty night.
Emma met her at her side of the car. She was a little taller than Tina, her bright green eyes running over her lips as if Tina's was the first face she had ever seen. Their faces drew closer together until Tina could feel her breath on her skin and for a moment they just stayed like this, in some strange trance-like state. Emma's lips met Tina's gently. They kiss deep and warm and like none Tina had ever experienced before. Emma's arms around her waist felt strong yet gentle and she smelt like incense and sugar. A ghost in Tina wanted to tell her that she had known her before, that she did remember her and maybe she did. As much as she could remember herself from those days, she remembered Emma. In this moment, Emma was the whole world.
The gangsta girl from the hood turns her life around to get an education but has she really turned her life around?
