These pains will go from barely noticeable to whatever degree they would be under the circumstances of one’s death the closer they get to it. Of course, the pain varies for everyone.

So, how do you feel?”

On the way home I decide that I’ll have to kill her too, for the sake of completeness.

The sound of the sea followed her all the way …

The sound of the sea followed her all the way home, part melody and part unending moan.
