Chapter 4 – I Saw Her Again Last Night


“You talk about love and my Stuart, but never mention Amy.”
John smiled, “We’re OK together.”
“But do you love her?”
He stared into the dashboard lights.
“It’s something that’s been taxing me, can you love two people? Are there degrees of love?”
She looked at him with consternation, “What’s that supposed to mean?”
“Love drops on you. Suddenly you’re consumed. So what was it before? A lower level of love?”
Alison caught her breath, “And what you have isn’t enough anymore?”
“How can it be?”
“Stuart’s a fine man, he doesn’t deserve this.”
“Does that make him enough?”

  1. You’ve hit the nail on the head and what I’m trying to explore here. Love cannot be resisted, yet we or society put so many rules and obstacles in the way to thwart it where we don’t consider it appropriate, i.e. when one or more of the pair are married or even where the two parties are same sex. This leads to questions of conscience and what does the individual do, stay true to themselves or true to society and what’s expected of them?
