He pulled the parchment out from beneath her finger, anyway. Still, he didn't look at it, but instead folded it in half, then half again, and slipped it into the pocket of his jeans.

"S'you readin' it what matters."
'cause my baby, she's a real peach
even when the night come crashin' down
real peach, and the nighttime rolls away, alright
and we're comin' back to the demon-killin' work of love

Obviously.
