"Never," he promises, stroking her hair, thick, glossy, and so very full of life; she has at least thirty years left, if she's careful, and maybe more, if she's also lucky.

"I'm sure that's what you said to the rest of them," she says, "and you even think you mean it, but you don't; all boys are the same, even if they're Fae."

He remembers them all, their names and the way they smelled, the way they left when they aged and he stayed the same, and he wonders if it might be easier if he lets her believe it, but he says it again -- "I won't do that," -- and she smiles, but it doesn't reach her eyes.
