Steve’s throat swelled with tension as the intimacy of the moment became more tangible. He moved his eyes from the dark, reflective river, to the dark, reflective pupils in Diane’s eyes. They seemed to quiver with tenderness – but then they would grow distant. He found himself continually surprised at the “aliveness” of the person standing just a foot away from him now. She wasn’t inanimate: she would flinch if he pinched her, and answer if he asked her. And she was beautiful.” — From “The Grand Unified Story” — a short story in Zack Love’s Stories and Scripts: an Anthology
