Things Past by Michelle K.
Amy wakes at three in the morning to an empty bed. When she goes looking for Donna, she's genuinely surprised to find her still in the apartment.
"What are you doing?"
Donna's hands cover the photo in front of her. "I couldn't sleep."
Amy sits down next to her. "What are you looking at?"
Donna reveals the picture: her and Josh of one year ago, smiling contentedly. "It's... It's just a photograph."
"Except you loved him then," Amy mutters. "That makes it a little more meaningful."
Donna looks over at her in annoyance, eyes saying: 'I've told you this a hundred times.' "I loved you on that day." She looks back at the photo. "But you wouldn't pose with me."
"And now you're nostalgic for the closet?"
Donna flips the picture over and pushes it away. "I'm nostalgic for my best friend not hating me."
Amy pushes back Donna's hair and kisses her cheek. She considers lying: 'Josh will come around' or some such nonsense. "Donna... Let's go back to bed."
