When Laurie returns briefly to the E.M.S. hospital, he gets drunk at a party in the nurses' common room. A couple of months later, Nurse Adrian realizes that she is pregnant. Laurie marries her, of course.
Comments on the story include the following:
- "On rereading this, I particularly appreciate how it begins and finishes with an accident. An error of judgement and an accident of timing. It knits the whole piece together, and gives it a feeling of realism- life isn't much more than a strung together series of coincidences. With those two incidents in place, the framework of everything that must and will lead up to the reveal is even more poignant. I really really like this." — comment by makioka
- "Oh god, this is wrenching and devastating; but you know from me that's praise, not an indictment. The writing is gorgeous, and the premise very believable" — comment by highfantastical
