“The Things We Do For Love”
Henry wakes to the realization that, one, he is in hospital with no memory of how he got there two, his brother Harry is nearby, three that he had no idea if his rescue mission succeeded or failed. And lastly, what happened to Radly.
The reality, he had been used as a human punching back, Michelle had disappeared, along with the Turk, and Harry made the conscious decision not to tell his little brother what had transpired while he was in the hospital. Good news though, Diana and Radly were in the same hospital, and were alive.
Harry has pieced together the night’s events, and ever relating it, he wonders how any of them are still alive.
His father comes to visit, and it’s apparent he doesn’t know the real reason Henry is there.
There is light at the end of the tunnel. Henry has bought a house in his now favourite village by the sea, easily accessible by train, for now, and plants to go there when discharged.
Michelle has not returned, and he has told himself that she might never. It’s that old saying, better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all.
Then it’s off to Morganville.
