Javier’s Song for Brooklyn

“I’ll come see you one day, promise.” Kiara tottered over to him. She gave him another hug, despite his evident discomfort.

She seemed to like him, in a maternal way. He liked her too. She was smart and funny. She had great taste in music.

Deep down, she must have known something wasn’t right in her relationship with Miles. In breaking them up, he was doing them both a kindness.
