    Summary

    The feelings that hurt most, the emotions that sting most, are those that are absurd - The longing for impossible things, precisely because they are impossible; nostalgia for what never was; the desire for what could have been; regret over not being someone else; dissatisfaction with the world’s existence. All these half-tones of the soul’s consciousness create in us a painful landscape, an eternal sunset of what we are.

    - Fernando Pessoa

    Anne tries not to think about Frederick, but it is a hopeless exercise.

    Summary

    Summary

    Anne is pretty sure that this isn’t what Aunt Russell had in mind when she persuaded her to go to university in London. The flat she’s sharing with Mary – not that Aunt Russell wanted Mary to go to London, she’s not that interested in the youngest one’s silly dreams and everything – is under her godmother’s name, and while it’s still close enough to campus, it’s also not too far from all the things Aunt Russel would want her to enjoy.
    The stay in Lime, but it's a night out in London.

    Summary

    Someone was knocking at my door and – without waiting for my reply – opened it.

    “There you are, Anne. I was looking for you at the staff meeting, but I couldn’t find you. Here, I want you to meet my brother. Frederick, this is Anne, the wonderful social worker I have told you about. Anne, this is my brother Frederick. He will be working with us for the coming twelve months for the sports project.”

    Twelve months.

    Fuck.
