Ikuko wondered if she was making aterrible mistake. “It’s only for six months,” shesaid to Hiroshi, trying to persuade herself asmuch as him. “A lot can happen in six months,” hesaid. “I don’t want to lose you. Remember youpromised to come back.” Ikuko looked at her ring. “I’ll comeback,” she said. They said goodbye, but as she wentthrough to the departure lounge she lookedback one last time.
