“It never occurred to me that our lives, until then so closely interwoven, could unravel and separate over a thing like that. But the fact was, I suppose, there were powerful tides tugging us apart by then, and it only needed something small┬áto finish the task. If we’d understood that back then, who knows? Maybe we’d have kept a tighter hold.”
