Departure

The talk got more desultory around the table and finally almost broke down altogether. I looked over at Jack and when I saw tears quietly rolling down his face, my own eyes filled too but I couldn’t let them drop. It would upset Clare too much and she was upset enough as it was. Then the talk dried up completely and Clare stood up and said it would be best if she got going now. She hugged us both and then quickly, head down and without looking back, she went through Departures on the first leg of her journey to Australia.
