"Deep in the heart of a city, a woman stood alone, at the top of a golden bridge which gleamed in the sun.
.....For once, after many, many years of sorrow, she smiled to herself. She, too, had found what she was seeking.
.....For what she'd asked him, in her real voice, a voice that only the heart could hear, was a simple question:
.....Have you ever once loved another human creature so much that her life was more precious to you than your own?
.....And his heart had replied in words just as plain:
....."Yes," it said, and the power of it nearly blinded her."
