Approximately Twenty-Four Hours, Gabrielle DeMarre

Your scent stays in my car for approximately twenty-four hours after you have been in it. Sometimes I pray I won’t need to drive anywhere for that twenty-four hours, unless perhaps someone is with me—they can cancel out the smell, and give me back my car (and my twenty-four hours). Other times, I am very careful, preserving it with controlled, deep breaths—afraid I might use it up before its twenty-four hours are through.
