*****

Elizabeth doesn't blame him for being angry.

He thinks she's having an affair, that she has spent the past three months of "mediating an international land treaty in Antarctica" spreading her legs for someone who comes in a foreign language.

He knows she's lying about something. She has never left him for a diplomatic assignment before.

"You're running away," Simon accuses her. "I'm getting too close for you."

She saw the jewelry catalog in his nightstand, dog-eared and circled. "I'm not. I love you."

She thinks of Pegasus, full of possibility and freedom, and wonders if he might be right.
