She remembered the exact moment when everything changed.
Four little words, and the waters rose in his eyes.
For a fraction of a second they remained, his eyes like two perfect balls of glass.
She saw her face reflected for a final, fragile instant. And she knew that this was the very last time that things would be right.
One last time, during which the world seemed to hold its breath. The bitter brother to when their eyes first met. A final chance to save everything.
Then the glass shattered, and everything was broken.
