Never Let Me Go

“‘I was thinking,’ I said, ‘about back then, at Hailsham, when you used to go bonkers like that, and we couldn’t understand it. We couldn’t understand how you could ever get like that. And I was just having this idea, just a thought really. I was thinking maybe the reason you used to get like that was because at some level you always knew.’

Tommy thought about this, then shook his head. ‘Don’t think so, Kath. No, it was always just me. Me being an idiot. That’s all it ever was.’ Then after a moment, he did a small laugh and said: ‘But that’s a funny idea. Maybe I did know, somewhere deep down. Something the rest of you didn’t.'”
