Younes think of Salim and missed chances.
Fandoms: Les Hommes Libres

Salim Halali is still beautiful. The war years have been kind.
If Younes were to give some thought to what Salim might have had to do to keep himself well-fed, unharmed – if he were to give some thought to what Salim would do to keep his voice – he might be disturbed, but Younes does not. He simply stares; heartstruck into silence and thoughtlessness. Salim is still beautiful; his cheeks are still smooth and tinged with blue, his eyes still clear, impossibly light and coloured like the Mediterranean.
