I want to sigh happily when I get to the end, relieved that the characters whose journey I have followed through thick and thin, through dangers and adventures, through heartbreak and grief, finally reach safe harbour. With each other. As I write this, hubby is leaning over my shoulder, reading. Right now, his arms tighten round me, his breath warm on my cheek and he whispers. “Like us.” Yes. Like us. Am I lucky or am I lucky?

Are they just so lost that any sliver of light is enough to go on? Maybe “happily ever after” for them is just getting out. Maybe “happily ever after” had nothing to do with the prince and just implied that there were able to move past the trauma in their soul or possibly they finally just let it swallow them up and lost who they ever were to begin with.
