Years before, he saw her run across a bridge near Venice. He watched from the boat passing below her, grateful to catch a flash of her before she was gone.

Years later, on a train in Romania, he thought he saw her again, asleep against a man’s shoulder. This time, she was so still he couldn’t be entirely sure.

He spent the whole ride watching without attracting notice. He had wanted to find her for years, but he could barely believe he could have two such chances in a lifetime.
