"This," he says. "This is why The Beatles got it."

"I'm afraid I'm not following-"

"Other bands, it's about sex. Or pain. Or some fantasy. But The Beatles, they knew what they were doing. You know the reason The Beatles made it so big?"

"What?"

"'I Wanna Hold Your Hand.' First single. Fucking brilliant. Perhaps the most fucking brilliant song ever written. Because they nailed it. That's what everyone wants. Not 24-7 hot wet sex. Not a marriage that lasts a hundred years. Not a Porsche or a blow job or a million-dollar crib. No. They wanna hold your hand.

I am immune from throwing myself at him again, seeing as how I’ve committed to a future life of loneliness and celibacy.

Maybe this is my way of creating the illusion of control over something I have no control over. Like, if it’s just a story I’m telling or a song I’m singing, then I’ll be okay because I’m the guy who’s providing the words. Which is not the way life works at all.

I'm seeing we don't live in a single song. We move from song to song, from lyric to lyric, from chord to chord. There is no ending here. It's an infinite playlist.

Because this is not a rush. This is not something insignificant. This is real. This is happening. And this is ours.

Nick's words about tikkun olam: Maybe it isn't that we're supposed to find the pieces and put them back together. Maybe we're the pieces.

Tikkun olam,"I repeat.

"Exactly. Basically, it says that the world has been broken into pieces. All this chaos, all this discord. And our job-everyone's job-is to try to put the pieces back together. To make things whole again."

But she's gone," I say.

Tris snorts. "Nick, Norah's not gone. She's clearly someplace. All you have to do is find out where that is."

She's a runner for sure-she'll run away every time without saying a word. But here's the thing-you are not a runner. And deep down, I don't think Norah wants to run, either. She just feels like she has to. Partly because she's a tiresome spoiled-brat smartass with no fashion sense. And partly because she's a fucking human being."

Fuck this waiting for something to happen that probably won't ever happen.

Fuck this belief that two people can become one ideal.

I am not about hate anymore, or humiliation, or regret. I'm too tired for that, too done and yet too renewed.

Nick stands up and offers his hand to me. I have no idea what he wants, but what the hell, I take his hand anyway, and he pulls me up on my feet then presses against me for a slow dance and it's like we're in a dream where he's Christopher Plummer and I'm Julie Andrews and we're dancing on the marble floor of an Austrian terrace garden. Somehow my head presses Nick's T-shirt and in this moment I am forgetting about time and Tal because maybe my life isn't over. Maybe it's only beginning.

I mean, I don't drink or smoke or do drugs, but I'm not over the top about it like some of the straight-edge breed who also don't eat meat or have sex, either. My straight-edginess is rather like my Judaism: firm, but reform.

Norah, you know you'll meet someone else, don't you?" Only I didn't believe her-until tonight.

Tris will not be waiting for me inside the car. Tris will not be waiting for me ever again.

While she was busy ripping me into pieces, that was the one fragment I begged to keep.
