Run as fast as you can - I watch her long eyelashes move as she blinks. I wish I had something of hers in my small, plain face. But at least I have something of hers in my brain. […] She cups my cheeks. Her hands are cold; her palms are rough. “I’m going to distract them. You have to run as fast as you can." "No." I shake my head. "I’m not going anywhere without you." She smiles. "Be brave, Beatrice. I love you." I feel her lips on my forehead and then she runs into the middle of the street.
