    notes:
    somewhat experimental in style. Not terribly dark, despite tags (perhaps a bit bleak, but spare is more appropriate I'd say). Adultery (final coda).

    comment:
    Oh, this is lovely and a little odd and rather unexpected (I very much dislike reading about teacher/student relationships but this looked intriguing enough that I thought I'd give it a whirl and I'm glad I did). I love the structure of the repetition of the coda (and I find the evolution of the coda itself fascinating). But it's this section right here that breaks me and is utterly wonderful:

    If she had turned back that day, she would've seen that the value he put up for Planck's constant was incorrect. He could not remember a time before he knew the value for h in three different units; the error was fundamental and beneath him. She did not turn back, however, and so did not see him err. She didn't see him retreat to his office later, either. She wasn't there as he turned his sister's picture upright for the first time in years, and she didn't sit across from him as he set the chess board.

    Despite her absence, he gave her white to play, as he should have from the beginning.
