Nina leans over Philip. Lightly, she touches his cheek. How can this have happened? How can this be?
Philip is so robust, so healthy, so - she tries to think of the right words - so engaged in life.
Come back, she whispers. Please, come back.
How can he leave her?
Without saying good-bye.
Without a word.
Please, she pleads.
Putting her head down on his chest, she listens.
