For all that, I will be eternally grateful to that girl, whoever she was, and whatever her relationship, past or present, with Rick that meant that I became my own again.

Not forgetting…never forgetting that I had the opportunity to be loved by the great Richard Blaine. An experience I don't think I can ever bring myself to completely regret.

After all I had loved him… and he too had loved me. However briefly.

The End
