“Well we both know that’s a lie.” She made a noise of protest but he continued to speak. “But let’s humour this little boyfriend fantasy of yours for a moment. Why would it matter if you had a boyfriend? I was asking you to show me around the village not to show me your knickers.”

“It means … you know … living beyond death. Living after death.”
