“But you’re coming?”
“I’ll be right behind you.”
“But you’re coming!”
“I ain’t never gonna leave your side.”
Peter remembered Cooper's kiss. How his hand held the back of his head, his face, his chest and buttocks too. But for some reason the word snowflake broke across Peter's lips like a forbidden secret. He sat for a little while longer, but his head felt heavy. He slumped back into his pillow and felt the irresistible pull of sleep behind his eyes.
He was drifting off when he heard the front door creak open.
Peter sat bolt upright. He glanced at his dad, but nothing had disturbed him. He stared at the gap in the door and told himself it was just the wind. Nothing could get up to the tree house while the rope ladder was drawn up, nothing. Peter whipped the quilt aside and stood up to close the door. But it was too late. Something was already there.
