“My breath catches, responding to an unfamiliar pull in my chest, an ache in my soul. I shouldn’t miss him, but I do; this boy who had every right to pull that trigger, and instead threw himself between me and death.

“In the bar, the jukebox comes on. Molley must be trying to drown out the sounds of raised voices. I move toward her, unable to resist; her eyes are wet, her face flushed, and I can finally look at her, want her, let myself touch her without grief turning everything to ashes in my mouth.”

Despite the smile on his lips, his gaze is so sad it feels like my heart is ripping in two, turning to ash as I look at him.

“Clear skies,” she whispers. “I hope you find what you’re looking for.”
Amie Kaufman, This Shattered World
