Bear had it all mapped out. How one thing led to another and how the circumstances influenced situations and how he thought he felt about the whole thing. All someone had to do was ask. Or present the opportunity. But that would never happen. It was too far back. Too much. Too long. There’d have to be too many footnotes. He’d need thumbtacks and string and poorly developed photographs for when his words failed. A tie to untighten savagely to signify it was no use. They just couldn’t get it. A moment of dark silence. And then the bright epiphany.
