“I have less than a year to live”
Lightheaded Luna turned and sat heavily on the bedside besides Sean. “Less than a year?”
“Yes and that is why i have been searching for a wife who will be good to my children, you responded to my second letter and i had clearly written there”
“One page was blotted with ink” Luna interjected
Nodding, Sean said “that page said that any women i married needed to be willing, within a few months, to raise my boys and nurture them alone”
“Because you will be gone” Luna kept staring at him
PS: This is a scene from the above mentioned book, a very touching scene!!
