Cecelia: Oh, you idiot! You realize that’s probably the most valuable thing we own?!
Robbie: Not anymore, it isn’t.
…my sister and Robbie were never able to have the time together they both so longed for, and deserved. And which ever since, I’ve…ever since I’ve always felt I prevented. But, what sense of hope or satisfaction could a reader derive from an ending like that? So in the book I wanted to give Robbie and Cecilia what they lost out on in life. I’d like to think this isn’t weakness or evasion. But a final act of kindness. I gave them…their happiness.
I will return. Find you, love you, marry you and live without shame.
