Emily never really did answer me. I didn’t know if that was because she was purposely avoiding the subject or she didn’t know that I’d actually asked her a question. My confusion was answered when I saw her face the next morning. I had left her in bed to get Lucy to school, when I returned she was wrangling Noah from his booster seat after he’d finished breakfast. She looked at me, let out a deep sigh and then diverted her eyes downward.
