"I'm just thinking that would be pleasant. To be reading, say,
out of a book, and you to come up and touch me – my neck, say, or my
knee – and I'd carry on reading, I might let a smile, no more,
wouldn't lose my place on the page. It would be pleasant to come to
that. We'd come so close, do you see, that I wouldn't be surprised out
of myself every time you touched."
