"I'm not sure there's too much for us to catch up on, actually," she told Jack, shooting an apologetic look at the shade. "I joined the army again, I turned pirate, I met you two. Which was wonderful. And then we were attacked. And then I died. I could embellish the tale for a while, but that's the high points."
André-Jozef looked from Mary, to Anne, to Jack, then back to her again. "What did I always say?" he asked gently. "As long as you were happy. That's what counts."
"They make me happy," Mary told him. "And they have for a long time."
"Well then," he said. "That solves that, then. And I'm happy you didn't just close yourself off after I died. That would have been a shame."
