Days of Blood & Starlight (Daughter of Smoke & Bone #2) Phantoms

I smiled. Hey, I was wondering when I’d run into you guys.

It was the kind of day she would have liked to spend with Noah, and as she was thinking about him, she remembered the letters her mother had given her and reached for them. She untied the package and found the first letter he had written her. She began to open it, then stopped because she could imagine what was in it. Something simple, no doubt-things he'd done, memories of the summer, perhaps some questions. Instead she reached for the last letter, the one on the bottom of the stack. The goodbye letter. This one interested her far more. How had he said it? How would she have said it?The envelope was thin. One, maybe two pages. Whatever he had written wasn't too long. She turned it over and checked the back. No name, just a street address in New Jersey. She held her breath as she used her fingernail to prise it open.

Unfolding it, she saw it was dated March 1935. Two and a half years without a reply.She straightened the page and began to read.I don't know what to say any more except that I couldn't sleep last night because I knew that it is over between us. It is a different feeling for me, one that I never expected. Looking back, I suppose it couldn't have ended another way.

You and I were different. We came from different worlds, and yet you were the one who taught me the value of love. You showed me what it was like to care for another, and I am a better man because of it. I don't want you ever to forget that.I am not bitter because of what has happened. On the contrary I am secure in knowing that what we had was real, and I am happy we were able to come together for even a short time. And if, in some distant place in the future, we see each other in our new lives, I will smile at you with joy, and remember how we spent a summer learning from each other and growing in love. And maybe, for a brief moment, you'll feel it too, and you'll smile back and savour the memories we will always share.

She read the letter again, then put it back into the envelope. She knew she couldn't delay any longer. Lon was waiting for her.

Her legs felt weak as she stepped out of the car. She paused and took a deep breath, and as she started across the parking lot she realized that she still wasn't sure what she was going to say to him.‘Ben,’ said Pearl, desperate not to start a fight. ‘Ben, please. It’s just it’s so expensive …’

‘I know how much it is,’ said Ben, his handsome face set like stone. Pearl swallowed. She wanted to believe he had a job, she did, but why couldn’t she get a straight answer out of him?She didn’t say anything more. Ben cursed quickly under his breath then turned to go.

‘Don’t you want to come in and see Louis?’ Pearl said, a little reluctantly.Ben shrugged, then slouched past her in through the door of the little ground-floor flat.

‘DADDY!’ Louis’ shout of joy, Pearl reflected, could be heard halfway down the street.Pearl never swore. She thought it showed an uncontrolled mind. But she got extremely close to it right then. She looked around. Someone had built a snowman from the dirty leftover snow of a few days ago. Someone else had taken the carrot off its nose and put it where a penis would be. Pearl sighed, and went back indoors, out of the freezing cold, feeling very far away from wishing goodwill upon all men.

‘So, Austin,’ Merv was saying, sitting back in his banquette and grumbling, presumably not for the first time, about the fact that he couldn’t smoke his cigar indoors. ‘What would you say our prospects are vis-à-vis …’Issy had realised that frankly there wasn’t a single thing she could contribute to the conversation – Candy was playing with her phone, like Darny would have been doing, and the director’s wife, who was called something like Vanya or Vania or something that sounded like it might be a name but wasn’t really, was making a massive point of differentiating herself from Issy and Candy by insisting on joining in with the men’s conversations in a highly technical and competitive way.

Candy yawned every so often quietly behind her hand, but then would lean in and stroke Merv’s thigh in an affectionate manner. Issy realised that a charming waiter was refilling her glass every time she took so much as a sip of the ambrosial white wine, so she kept at it. Since neither Vanya nor Candy ate at all, Issy went at the bread basket in an almost passive-aggressive manner. Meanwhile Austin was talking about Europe and money and futures and micro-trading and other things Issy hadn’t even heard of in a way that was completely beyond her and very impressive.She wondered what Austin thought about her job – he saw her at work, she supposed, making coffee and baking cakes and handling the customers, but she didn’t think he found it very impressive (she was quite wrong to think this; Austin thought what she did was amazing). Meanwhile, here he was, eating a very rare steak and explaining why the future of Europe was as luxury-goods merchants to roaring emerging economies, whilst everyone nodded sagely and listened to everything he said. Suddenly Issy wished Darny were there to wind Austin up and say something cheeky.
