Audrey Niffenegger | Why We Wait

"How come I always have to wait.?"
"Because patience is a virtue. Also, you've known me your whole life, whereas I only meet you when I'm twenty-eight. So I spend all those years before we meet --"
"Fucking other women"
"Well, yeah. But unbeknownst to me, it's all just practice for when I meet you. And it's very lonely and weird. If you don't believe me, try it yourself. I'll never know. It's different when you don't care."
"I don't want anybody else."
"Good"
"Henry, just give me a hint. Where do you live? Where do we meet? what day?"
"One hint. Chicago."
"More."
"Have faith. It's all there, in front of you."
"Are we happy?"
"We are often insane with happiness. We are also very unhappy for reason neither of us can do anything about. Like being separated."
