Sure, once we were married we would fuck all the time, but until then she was just too special, too fragile or something. I really just wanted to be near her. All the time. Alone. Just the two of us. If everybody else in the world died I didn’t give a shit so long as Shirley survived and would talk to me. Would touch my hand and look into my eyes and smile. I wouldn’t need food or water.

He didn’t look at me when he said it, because he wasn’t talking to me.
