    Summary

    Eight years later.

    "To bid goodbye, is to say, ‘I must put you into God’s hands, since I can no longer hold you in mine.’ A goodbye is a capitulation to forces bigger, stronger than ourselves, than our wills, our desires. It is a surrender, of someone dear, to the questionable mercies of the world. One quite literally gives them up.” She sipped at her wine. “Goodbyes are shattering, and devastating, and holy. And life is full of them. Do not try to make them easy. Far better to make them worthwhile."

    Summary

    “Turn around.”

    When Marianne hears that voice, all air gets knocked out of her lungs. She freezes, completely paralyzed just one step away from the exit of the theatre. She could just walk away, pretend she imagined the voice–maybe she did after all those years–and go on with her life without the agony that comes with clinging on to hope. But she cannot resist, like she couldn’t before. So, Marianne turns around, and when she does, her eyes fill with tears.

    (Or, Héloïse sees Marianne too.)

    Summary

    Weddings inevitably lead to people asking her when she’s going to find a man and settle down, and she gets enough of that from her family on a regular basis, thank you very much. But she made it through dinner without much trouble, and now she somehow got herself the company of the prettiest gal there.
