    Summary

    Javert’s observing of Valjean as the older man toiled in the garden had become an experience almost akin to reverie.

He was Demeter, and summer followed in his footsteps.

    Summary

    Surely Valjean knew. Yet he has been calm and self-assured through it all, never faltering, never flinching—and even as Javert leaned forward to kiss him, he watched him with that assured benevolence and did not move away.

    And now he gasps at an accidental brush of fingers, and when Javert goes to chide him, finds that he is blushing. "Now you've done it, Javert," he says to himself under his breath. "That's just the thing I need—to make a fool of us both."
