            Sometimes Abby thinks it might have been kinder if he’d had a quick death, something heroic. Not slowly fading away like this.

            Their daughter had tentatively suggested a home, but Abby wasn’t ready to give him up yet. Even when he didn’t know who she was any more.

            She wonders what is locked up in his head; if he remembers the good times, the adrenaline, the discoveries, the losses, the achievements. Anything at all from their lives together.

            Abby reaches across and holds his hand.

            “I love you, Connor.”

            He smiles at her, and Abby adds it to her memories.
