from The List:

 

“Years from now, she’ll find the list at the bottom of a well-travelled cardboard box, a box that will have moved – unopened – across state lines and back again, twice. He will be living in Arkansas; she will be married to someone else. She’ll run her finger along the rounded corner of the cardboard cover and then she’ll place the notebook back in the box. She’ll push the box back into the recesses of the closet, behind the winter clothes and Christmas decorations, underneath the spare blankets they keep handy for guests and very cold nights.”
