book quote, The Nirvana Threads

hello to you, too

There wasn’t anywhere she needed to be, so Carlie puttered around until she flopped into the living-room armchair with the raggedy Kerouac novel Leo had lent her. She hadn’t even flipped the first page when a knock came at the door.

“Hello to you, too.” He smiled, attempting to let himself in.

“Just a kiss,” she murmured.
