Brittany is the best thing that Santana will never have. Brittany is like the sun because she shines and Santana is stunned every time she smiles. Brittany is like the sun because every time Santana sees the blonde, her day is brighten. Worse of all, Brittany is like the sun because she's out of so far out of reach.
The mark is a sun, yellow-orange on the tanned wrist of Santana's skin. The mark glows in colour the way it does when your in love.
Your own mark developed around age two or three, on your left arm. Every time you fall in love that persons mark appears on yours in bright, truanting colours, bright until you fall out of love and it fades to black and white. They line up on your right arm, the signs of falling in love, so it's not uncommon to see people covering up their arms.
Santana does, hiding not just the bright sun that shows her love for Brittany but her own too. Santana's mark is a flower, a lily to be precise. She doesn't understand how she's represented by something so delicate, so pretty when she's neither of those things.
Brittany is the first person Santana's fallen in love with and she has Kurt and Blaine to blame or thank for meeting her. The two were very much in love, they wear each other's mark, the bright yellow bird and the little bow tie coloured blue and red and look at each other like they're the only one who matters.
They'd got married last year, at the age of 22. Santana had been oddly touched to be the head bridesmaid and while watching the couple dance, a girl had approached her.
"Do you like the cake?" She asked, bright eyed and smiling.
"I haven't tried it yet."
"I designed the cake, it's pretty isn't it?"
Santana smiled at Brittany (she was a stranger at the time, but still so full of Brittany, so full of light.) "It is."
It took a while for the sun to appear on Santana's previously bare arm. It hadn't hurt, like she had thought. Santana had simply woke up on morning with the sun glowing at her in greeting, after staying up till 2am on the phone with Brittany.
