Synopsis
I think that might have been my last boyhood fantasy. After that the world was cold and real and unforgiving. Since that day you've only ever permitted me glimpses of the light. I stayed at school until the next summer, waiting to hear from you. You didn't write me one word for nearly a year. At last a telegram, from Gerald. 'Your mother needs you. Come.' Hardly his best literary effort but thankfully one of his most succinct. I flew to Nice and you met me at the airport: a vision of beauty, exhausted, thin, sober. 'I think he's left me,' were your first words. 'God - it's so good to see you. You're so tall.' I'd grown taller than you. 'It's better than anything/ I said. 'He's been gone nearly two weeks now. I'm alone.' This, with a kind of exultation as if you'd accomplished a miracle. 'I got a telegram from him yesterday saying he'd sent for you.' 'Do you think he'll come back?' *It would be far better if he didn't.' You said this looking over my shoulder nervously, as if searching for an image of him. I was afraid to ask you more. 'But I don't want to talk about him.' You focused on me. 'Let's talk about you.' I sat at your feet beside the fire - the July evening was cool-which meant that I had to sacrifice looking at your face for the comfort of being so close to you. We'd feasted but I have no memory of what we ate. 'I expect you'll fall in love soon/ you said. 'Sixteen- it's about the age.' You were drinking wine, but only sipping at the glass, 'Why do you say that - as if it didn't matter to you?' 'Of course it matters, darling. I was simply saying -' I turned round so I was on my knees before you.
