True Love

by Nyx Hunt

We stood out in the backyard so that I could help you trim your overlong beard. I decided that I should give you a hair cut too, as your hair was becoming way too long. I forgot - I do not know how to cut hair. After only a few disastrous snips I got out the clippers and just buzzed your whole head. I laughed, half in guilt, half at how ridiculous your hair looked. You just chuckled and said it would grow back.


Nyx Hunt is, quite surprisingly, happily married. She is fascinated with words and the infinite ways they fit together.
