"Of course." When Arik came over to take their order, Lopak ordered two rare-as-legal steaks with whatever sides came with it. "Arik, is your daughter in school at all? She seems to be here every day."
"She's homeschooled." He smiled, a little sadly. "She's got a hell of a sleeping disorder, so between the doctor visits and the school attendance policies, this was easier."

I stare at the girl in the mirror: T-shirt, torn up jeans, no beauty queen.
But the way that you see me, you get underneath me, and all my defenses just fall away, fall away.
I am beautiful with you, even in the darkest part of me. I am beautiful with you;
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!
