“Pick up the pieces” she told him
“pick up the pieces” she reminded him briefly
Pick up the pieces…she couldn’t remember if this is what she actually told him, but the image was so vivid. The hanging arms, the falling shoulders, his face after hearing the words “i’m leaving”, no breathing… she could swear he stopped breathing aprox. 5 minutes.
The only thing that stops her from walking away right this instant is the fact that they are in an elevator.
