    When he’d posed his question – about children really understanding what it meant to love – I believe he was already sure of the answer and was simply raising the question for my benefit.

    I know I’ll always keep searching for someone just like her.

    But now we’re no longer kids, we have to wish each other the best and go our different ways.

    Fear entered my mind

    repeating under her breath, ‘Josie, Josie, Josie,’ as though this were part of a song she was memorizing

    Perhaps all humans are lonely. At least potentially.

    Of course, a human heart is bound to be complex. But it must be limited.

    And it was clear the Sun was unwilling to make any promise about Josie, because for all his kindness, he wasn’t yet able to see Josie separately from the other humans, some of whom had angered him very much on account of their Pollution and inconsideration, and I suddenly felt foolish to have come to this place to make such a request.

    I’m surprised someone would desire so much a path that would leave her in loneliness.

    We’re both of us sentimental. We can’t help it. Our generation still carry the old feelings. A part of us refuses to let go. The part that wants to keep believing there’s something unreachable inside each of us. Something that’s unique and won’t transfer. But there’s nothing like that, we know that now. You know that. For people our age it’s a hard one to let go. We have to let it go, Chrissie. There’s nothing there. Nothing inside Josie that’s beyond the Klaras of this world to continue. The second Josie won’t be a copy. She’ll be the exact same and you’ll have every right to love her just as you love Josie now. It’s not faith you need. Only rationality.

    people often felt the need to prepare a side of themselves to display to passers-by – as they might in a store window – and that such a display needn’t be taken so seriously once the moment had passed.
