“Au revoir, mon ami.” Marie kissed Pierre’s ice-cold cheek.
“Where Papa?” asked fourteen-month-old Eve.
“He’s going to sleep his last sleep beneath the earth,” said eight-year-old Irène.
Marie placed a bunch of periwinkles and Pierre’s favorite photograph beside him. The picture was of her on the balcony of their first apartment on rue d’Allemagne. Refusing a black drape, she and her daughters adorned his coffin with flowers.
“I’ve no future without you, Pierre.”
“Remember our dream for humanity,” she heard him say, “for science.”
Days later Madame Marie Curie returned to the laboratory, her haven of discovery, joy and solace.
