�Remy never be good enough for her.�
�Why?� she asked softly, bewildered.
�Remy�s been around, chere,� he said softly. Voice breaking, he added, �And around.�
Holding him in her arms, she witnessed the breaking of a heart. It was both magnificent and horrific, like watching beautiful skyscrapers crash to the ground.
After a time, he slid down, sprawling across her bed to gently lay his head in her lap. Almost absently, she ran her pearly manicured nails through his long coppery hair as he sobbed almost silently.
Powerless, Aurora simply held him and watched her rain stream down the windows.
