"I was raped?"

"And beaten near death," he said with a shake of his head. "I don't know how you survived, but you did. To protect you, your mind backtracks whenever you feel overwhelmed, overly stressed, mentally threatened."

"So my mind blanks stuff out?"

"Precisely. It's a survival technique. The human mind is so wonderful and so versatile." By his glowing eyes, he loved his job. His enthusiasm and genuine warmth melted more of her resistance.

"But how is it I remember being alone getting on the train, and Toby got on at the next stop?" she challenged.
