I was moved to embrace the only person I felt I would ever stand beside. “What?” he whispered as he held me in return. “You are not alone,” I murmured. “And neither am I. And the world is mad, not us.” He gave a brief bark of pained amusement and held me tighter. “If this is sanity, then the world is a very dark and scary place.”
