Henry awoke to the sound of a girl crying. It was a pretty sound, melodic in a way, and he sort of wanted it to go on like a song repeated perpetually. When he cracked his eyes open, he couldn’t really see who was crying, though, and when he opened his eyes all the way, she stopped.
She wasn’t pretty, exactly, but she was fierce. She stared straight ahead at the river, her eyes flashing, a mix between angry and mournful. The red flush on her cheeks looked like flames, and Henry couldn’t help but think that her beauty lay hidden within her like a soot-covered ember at the bottom of a fire.
The girl flipped half of her long auburn hair over her shoulder and glared at him as if he’d done something atrocious, which Henry hardly thought fair, considering she’d interrupted his nap with her sniffling.
“What’s wrong?” Henry asked, because “Who are you?” didn’t really seem like the right thing to say.
“Mmm,” she growled deep in her throat. Her eyes flicked past Henry’s shoulder. She looked as if she wanted to escape, but she didn’t move.
