Edgar Award "I snuck into the ICU and saw her while she was unconscious... ..She had this dark cancer water dripping out of her chest. Eyes closed. But her hand was still her hand, still warm and the nails painted this almost black dark blue and I just held her hand and tried to imagine the world without us and for about one second I was a good enough person to hope she died so that she would never know that I was going, too. But then I wanted more time so we could fall in love. I got my wish, I suppose. I left my scar"
-Augustus Waters "maybe 'okay' can be our 'always'"
