She and her.

She –had been an habitual long-term relationship-er diving in and out, and in and out and in and out of relationships like a dolphin skidding across the water, like a sewing machine repairing a tear in clothing.

 

She –had been a serial short-term dater, avoiding anything that even smells too close to seriousness.

 

Until she plunged into her like a cartoon jumping off of a tight rope into a cup of water.

 

They –never looked back, and if so, not for too long. They belonged.
