Summary: Humbert contemplates his survival.

It seems strange that she never tried to kill me, despite ample opportunity.

There was a stone staircase on the outskirts of New Orleans, reminiscent of those where I once consorted with the filles de joie of Montmartre. Memories tempted me and Dolores had no choice but to comply.

Afterwards, when I was spent and utterly vulnerable, how easy would it have been to push me down those same stairs and blithely walk away from the “unfortunate accident?” Instead, she merely spat and grimaced, allowing me to keep lying to myself.

If I weren’t dead, she must still love me.
