Do second thoughts come with second chances?

Slipping, slipping, slipping.

Brown eyes watched, praying to the heavenly nothing. Please. No. Please! His hand in hers, the skin so warm against her own, and it felt like infinity. An unspoken existence, an unfamiliar equilibrium, and somehow there was peace. The air held little understanding and even less progress. For just a moment, there was nothing anywhere beyond their personal nothingness.
