"When they crossed into the park, Two Feathers handed Holly the puppy’s leash, and this time, she took it. It was scratchy blue nylon, and quite long, and she found herself looping it around her wrist and then grasping it, the way she always did. She felt the tug at the other end and, for a moment, she missed Chester so much she could barely breathe. But she kept walking, and she kept breathing. A lot of life, it seemed to Holly, was turning out to be just like that. You keep walking, and you keep breathing, and then one day you notice, again, the feel of the wind on your cheek."
