I pushed up painfully to my knees and found him watching me with new tears and concern. “You are in misery,” he said hoarsely. “Everywhere but my heart,” I said to reassure him, and then knew I should not lie. “Non: oui and non. That is more poetry than truth.” I laid my hand alongside his face and held his gaze on mine. “I only know one thing. I love you. That is all I have. All else is in ruin or embattled.” He kissed my palm and met my gaze earnestly. “It is mutual. The only truth I have is you. All else, all the pretty little places I built to hide things, and hold them, and… The houses I have built against the storm. They are all gone. I feel I have no friends, or family, or… nothing, except you.”
