Okay, here is another little story shuffle I wrote. If you have heard the song, you will see that I quoted it many times.
P.S. Newkirk trailing off just signifies Deryn's boredom, he did not just forget to finish the sentence.
“How can you say that?” Deryn asked incredulously. Deryn and Alek were sitting in Deryn’s room, having a heavy conversation about the furthest constellations of their souls.
“You won’t find faith or hope down a telescope, you won’t find heart and soul in the stars. You can break everything down to chemicals but you can’t explain a love like ours.” Alek said while he stared into Deryn’s ever incredulous eyes.
“Always the softy, you” She had tried to push evolution as the obvious conclusion of the start, but it had been for her own amusement, saying love was an illusion of the hopeless heart. But then he had gone and said something that just knocked her dead.
“It’s the way we feel, yeah this is real.” Alek whispered just as Newkirk barged in.
“A house full‘a ninny’s” Deryn muttered as she saw the truth behind what Alek had just said.
“See you at dinner, Deryn.” Alek said as he walked out the door, interrupted by Newkirk.
“What are you doing here anyway?” Deryn snapped crossly at Newkirk.
“Oh, um well, Dr. Barlow says………..”
