Wine ages well, as does marble. Chocolate does not.

Wesley, she thinks, is chocolate. Not only in the obvious sense — recent experience has made him hard and bitter — but also in that he is among the few things in her current state that she finds simultaneously disagreeable and … comforting.

She can never quite decide (when she bothers to wonder) whether he hates her. It's not a matter of any importance, but sometimes she simply wishes she could be sure.

Once a piece of chocolate has been consumed, the wrapper is discarded.

Memories, it would seem, don't work quite that way.
