My husband is 19 years older than me (the same age difference as Akinli and Kahlen when she will be released from service). Dennis and I often joke and wish about time travel or magic so we could have more time together.
I like imagining such a world where I travelled his timeline, being a point of happiness even as I couldn’t stick around for obvious reasons. Even though it makes me cry.
