“How long are you going to be here?” I asked, as I handed her a mug of coffee made with all hot milk to keep out the chill.

She smiled crookedly. “I can’t stay. I need to get back to Hvammstangi—I really shouldn’t be here at all. I don’t know what drew me down here.” As she spoke, she laid her hand, warm from the mug and from the heart of her, on my arm. I placed my own hand over it and twined my fingers into hers, my stomach feeling like it was full of little fishes darting joyfully in all directions. “But I’m glad I came,” she whispered.
