    Summary

    “Was it you who suggested this...procedure?” He paused around the word as if it was barbed.
    “No,” she said to his desk. “My employers heard me one night. I was… Well, it...I…” Her breath came faster and her cheeks pinked.
    Ben waited, curiosity piqued.
    Rey inhaled shallowly and flicked a nervous glance at him. “I was dreaming of— Oh, it’s not important.” She flapped a hand as if to dismiss the subject, but Ben could see the tremble of her fingers. “And anyway, I must have made a...sound. In my sleep. And someone heard it. And now I am seen to be hysterical and in need of a relaxative paroxysm. Because heaven forbid there to be a hysterical governess. Think of the children, and all that.” Her casual tone clashed with the rest of her; she was as red as a beet and a wisp of curling brown hair escaped from her updo to brush against her cheek. She swept it away with an unsteady hand.
    “What were you dreaming about?” His voice sounded awfully low to his own ears. He wasn’t sure why he asked; as she’d said, it wasn’t important.
    Rey opened her mouth, appeared to struggle with her sentence, then pursed her lips at the window and choked out a short laugh. “It’ll sound ridiculous,” she said quietly.

    Summary

    All the myriad things he’d been—someone who made her laugh; the warmth on the other side of the bed; her best friend—those things, Rey had buried.


    Rey left Ben two years, three months, and sixteen days ago. But who's counting?
