Today heâ€™d â€œwalkedâ€ Aurelia to the Waterfront Park in downtown Portland. Well, a few yards behind her as always, but he liked to think he was looking out for her. Unusual for a Sunday to find Aurelia wandering the city. It was nice to see her out of her element, though the day wasnâ€™t nice now. Aurelia stood at the railing in the cold wind, but she wasnâ€™t looking at the Willamette Riverâ€™s white caps or the jet boat screaming past. She was shouting over the phone at her boyfriend.
