This is the end of the story for Geoff and Nia. It is tremendously sad but somehow life-affirming. Some of the scenes I wrote here were so difficult to get through and yet I enjoyed every minute of it.
Universe is a love song to this couple. I spent so much time with them I’m shaking at the thought of having to move on. This is a 300,000 word story about one family. Holy cow.
Funny thing is, I have to keep reminding myself, the universe bestowing gifts to them—when it does—is me. I’m their universe and to me, they exist.
