She kills him with that mouth, it scalds like holy water when she’s pissed and turns gentle as rain when he doubts himself.
It double speaks when she talks to the bill collectors, and blinds with a smile when she wants to charm a potential client.
He watches for an hour or more as she eats a couple of peaches, juices caught on the end of a curling pink tongue, mouth savoring the meat of the fruit in a way that makes him sweat with envy.
He knows it’s pathetic, but he does it anyway, one time when he’s alone in her apartment.
Her toothbrush is pale lavender, and it’s mostly manufactured mint on the bristles, but underneath that, he can detect a slight trace of her.
And savors the taste.
