Laura spoke frankly. Augustus, nothing
shall divide us. When this holiday is over,
I will see you, in London. We shall be
inseparable. Always. And then she kissed
me, ecstatically. It was like a thousand
volts had shot through me. Afterwards,
we embraced. I held her very close.
Vivienne blundered into the room.
Laura delicately unhooked herself from
my arms. There was no embarrassment.
It was understood. We were one.
