“Go. It’s fine.”
Andy trembles under his hand, and she nods, her gaze ricocheting off his. For the space of one breath he thinks she’ll reach for him; Nick braces himself. He doesn’t know how he’ll do this -- be the partner she needs -- if she touches him.
Instead, she edges past to go to Sam. He watches her back; it’s habit. He barely sees her now, her body a blue smudge, a dot on the horizon as he stands on a distant shore.
She laughs in her sleep, this magical woman. Nick knows he’ll never witness it again.
