Wedding Night: A Novel by Sophie Kinsella
Young people! With their hurrying and their worrying and their wanting all the answers now. They wear me out, the poor, harried things.
Donâ€™t come back, I always tell them. Donâ€™t come back.
Youth is still where you left it, and thatâ€™s where it should stay. Anything that was worth taking on lifeâ€™s journey, youâ€™ll already have taken with you.
Twenty years Iâ€™ve been saying this, but do they listen? Do they, hell. Here comes another of them now. Panting and puffing as he reaches the top of the cliff. Late thirties, Iâ€™d guess. Attractive enough, against the blue sky. Looks a bit like a politician. Do I mean that? Maybe a movie star.
I donâ€™t remember his face from the old days. Not that that means anything. These days I barely even recall my own face when I glimpse it in the mirror. I can see this chapâ€™s gaze raking the surroundings, taking in me sitting in my chair under my favorite olive tree.
â€œAre you Arthur?â€ he says abruptly.
â€œYou must want a drink,â€ I say pleasantly. Always useful to steer the conversation in the direction of the bar early on.
â€œI donâ€™t want a drink,â€ he says. â€œI want to know what happened.â€
