His top half was bare, too, because that was where they had to send the beam. Adam thought it looked like something out of Doctor Who but Jenna thought it looked like a giant hairdryer. Have you got that? So I want you to think about her doing that. How does that sound? But Jenna felt sad. She knew from the quietness of his voice and the stillness of his eyes. Then she and Mum and Dad and the doctors and nurses had to leave Adam alone with the hairdryer machine.

She married at twenty and had two children by the time she was twenty-four. Adam took things more slowly, as boys often do.
He grew up and joined the army — he was forever flying off to far-flung places and worrying Jenna and his parents silly. So stop worrying.
Adam being invincible was one of those family stories — the kind that start out because of some truth, usually one that everyone has forgotten, and then take hold and become a universally accepted fact. It was four days later that the accident happened. Jenna had just got back from dropping off the children at school when she got the call. Instead it was comprised of very sharp moments. Each one bright and clear, interlocking with and yet separate from the next. The phone call to Rob to tell him she was on her way to the hospital; the nurse at the ICU talking to her in hushed tones.
She was right. It was a shock.
