"It was silly, not to say potentially disastrous, but he had long found himself inordinately fond of Lieutenant Little, of his endearing manners and uncertain charm, and of the way he had, of late, treated Thomas almost as if they were equals.

Like most people, Thomas learned about soulmates at a young age, before he even knew what words like “love” and “marriage” really meant.
“Everybody has a soulmate,” his mother told him. They were sitting in front of the fire, Thomas remembered, he in his usual spot by his mother's feet, holding her skein of wool as she knitted. “A perfect partner. The person you are meant to spend your life with. If you are lucky enough to find them, at the moment you meet both of you will be granted a vision of how your lives together will end.”
“That's terrible!” Thomas was shocked. Shouldn't meeting a soulmate, a sort of absolute best friend as he understood it, be a happy occasion?
“Oh, no, darling!” His mother reached out to rest a comforting hand on his head. “It's a very special gift. You should count yourself most fortunate if ever it happens to you.”
