    Summary

    Slowly and with great care, Roe goes about the business of severing the thin ties that had begun to bind him to Heffron. Day by day he transfers a little more of his dependency on to Renee - and it’s easy this time, it hurts less than with Babe. Roe realises, with a spreading warmth of shock and relief, that the worst has already happened: Renee is dead. He will never answer the scream for a medic and find her there, bleeding, begging, crying for her mother. It is nothing like the armed grenade that was his tentative friendship with Babe.

    He has already lost her, and now there is nothing left to be afraid of.

    **
    Renee stays with Roe after her death, and after the war, and every day he spends with her he becomes a little less alive.

    (Note: Although Babe is absent until the end, he is a fairly huge and important factor in the entire story.)
