Isobel gets her groove back
Excerpt:I love you, she had scrawled. And I know you’re in there. Can you write down what you want to tell me?
She’d watched him read it, had seen the light return to his eyes. He gestured with his left hand for the pen. She had placed it in his hand, holding the pad steady for him.
You are beautiful, she’d watched him write. Both of you.
Tears flowed unbidden from the corners of her eyes. Holding his gaze, she had pressed her lips to his. It seemed he’d understood the gesture loudly and clearly, as he returned the kiss with fervour.
Isobel, he had continued, I’m sorry. Never been out of control before. Not my favourite.
It was her turn.
Understandable, she had assured him. You’re going to get better, you know. Already so much improvement. And I know you’re still there. Still brilliant. My love.
She’d seen the way his brow furrowed in response. That’s a good sign, she’d thought, clinging to a fragment of hope.
If I don’t … came his next words.
“No,” she had whispered as she read. Catching herself, she’d pressed a hand against her mouth and watched as the rest of his message had formed:
… You have so much love inside of you. Don’t spend your life alone, Izzy. Find love again. Promise me.
