I deal with the morning annoyance and then lie there. ‘Humoring the cripple’, she said. I don’t like that. I really don’t. What happened? Why are we starting to differ? It was all so beautifully symmetrical. And now, just as we are settling down a little… ‘As it cools down, it undergoes a phase change. Symmetry is broken and more order is revealed.’ Is that what we’re doing? Is this some clever way this Keira or Keiran is getting more mileage out of our wishes? Make them move in different directions?
That— That could actually be cool. As long as it’s different but good. I don’t want George to end up as some damsel in distress. I guess that’s not very likely if it’s really about getting more mileage out of the wishes, though.
