"Theo’s last video starts when Nell laughs. She’s always laughed, maybe she’s still laughing, at some anecdote about Theo’s boss or his commute. Nell grabs his forearm, a light touch. She slides her fingerprints to his wrist and points. She tells him there’s marinara sauce on his cheek. She touches it, and then she reaches for his shirt and tells him his buttons came undone. You’re sloppy T, she says, licking her lips like she’s sealing the sight of him in her mouth."
