Then two remained with not much to say, with not much to say at all. They sat together, day after day, sometimes side by side and sometimes across from one another, day after day, with nothing much to say, nothing much to say at all. Still they spoke, spoke to one another, spoke day after day. It passed the time. Confirmed each to the other that the other was alive, each to the other. They sat together, and spoke, and heard. They sat and spoke and heard. They sat and spoke and heard and so are content.
