2 Works in Fly Away Peter - David Malouf
Ashley had heard Jim approach the house and met him on the veranda, same as he had every day for over a year.
The words fell from Jim's lips quietly, softly, and drove the air from Ashley's lungs.
'Fly Away Peter' slash. The second meeting between Jim Saddler and Ashley Crowther during the war, in the north of France. This time it's more than just a casual smoke (refer to page, um, 122, I think, for the start to this scene). Ashley/Jim slash, obviously.
