We sat there on top of the car just gazing directly into the sky. It was after ten o’clock and the stars were shining down on us. I put my frozen hand onto hers. Our legs dangled off of the car roof and onto the windscreen. It was a nippy December night, but we lay in thick heavy coats, mittens and woolly socks. We lay there for an hour until we fell asleep under the twinkling night sky. I could feel her heart beating, like we were one person.
