This week, my swoon is from Aerie by Maria Dahvana Headley!
"Why do you look like that?" she asks me.
"Because I'm in love with you, stupid.," I tell her.
She runs a hand down my side and kisses me again. After a moment, I kiss her back. I try to live in that for the moment. It turns out, I can.
"I'm in love with you stupid too." she says.
I roll over and feel her underneath me, her hip bones and ribs and elbows. I can smell the smoke from the ampersand star I gave her, and I can see her face in the light of the Magonion star she's sung into being.
I kiss this girl who is mine because of some miracle.

I thought Magonia was okay, but so far, I'm liking Aerie a lot!
