I then found myself studying those painted birds again more closely. Somehow my eyes were drawn to two particular sparrows—the only pair out of a host of birds, the rest each flying separately, painted by my talented sister. They were high up, well over six feet from the floor. Tracy must have stood upon something in order to get them up there. I walked over to them and peered more closely. These two birds, clearly mates, were so close together that they appeared to be kissing. A cute and clever anthropomorphism, but it worked. And in their bills, they both held a small banner, such as appears over some Catholic altars or, in heraldry, upon family coats of arms.
What did it say? I squinted in the soft light of Tracy’s candles.
“Omnia vincit amor; et nos cedamus amori!”
Ah, I thought. ‘Love conquers all; let us all yield to love.’ Virgil. My God, she’s brilliant.
I couldn’t take my eyes off of it.

She crossed slowly over to where I stood.
“Well, of course they are, you big dummy,” she said, quietly teasing me as she wrapped an arm round my waist. “These little birds, flying to the four corners of the earth, represent our family members.”
“And these two here—”
“Represent us: you and me, big brother.”
Incongruously perhaps, with regard to the weather, Tracy had changed into a white
Feeling suddenly overwhelmed, my head and heart spinning with desires I dared not
express, I sat down slowly upon her bed. The mattress was firm and comfortable, and
the bed itself was a lovely thing, looking almost mediaeval in its ornate style.
Finely wrought carvings of laughing cherubim adorned the top of the canopy, and I
could well imagine Lord Byron himself sleeping in such a bed. Tracy sat down beside
me, offering me the T-
