Miya nodded, and signed back, "I know, but I..." She stopped mid gesture.
Georgie explained, "Miya and I had to grow up on our own. We only had enough money to go to school, and even then, only one of us could go. Miya insisted I went.

Make it feel the way it's supposed to be!
You're here with me: Just show me this and I'll believe I am beautiful with you!
