Getting away, we covered three hundred miles in less than four hours. She never said a word. She huddled away from me on her side of the seat, nursing her bandaged hands in her lap. She made the perfect picture of a beautiful young murderess riding off into purgatory, and I loved her more intensely than a man with a rope around his neck loves life itself . . .
