And I meant it. Being close to her like that made me feel as if our very minds were interlocked. A gestalt of our bodies pressing together formed and hovered in my mind like one of those dreams you have where your sense of happiness and everything being right with the world is so strong that it’s like a physical loss when you wake up. I thought Mona was envisioning exactly the same thing, but—no, we couldn’t be reading minds. Besides I didn’t feel any thoughts from her, just a sense of goodness and contentment like I had.
I couldn’t make myself do it, even though I was as scared as a rabbit with a fox’s head already in its cage with its jaws open. I felt my heart beating wildly and my mouth went dry with terror at what was happening. I think the only thing that kept me from running was having been in combat, albeit briefly. It isn’t courage that keeps you going in those situations, it’s loyalty to the others in it with you. Without even knowing what I could do, and without any real hope that I was going to live through the encounter, I drove back around and into the alley, hoping that I might be able to go in that way and rescue Mona.

That poor man with the mangled legs from the emergency room was undoubtedly dead by now. Chalk up one more for their side. *** We spent the next three days more in bed than out of it, truth be told. It was like a honeymoon where a couple love each other so much they can hardly bear to be separated, even for a minute. Or I suppose it was like that. Neither of my marriages had been that good, but if it were possible, this is the way I would have liked them to be.
