She could have reached for the child Amy, who might even have crawled up with the butterfly book, remembering how Polly had given it to her because children remember these things, and Polly could have kept her safe from the baby jaguars that eat Blue Morpho butterflies. But listen, Mo McCallum had stopped reading when Amy went very still, sometimes if it flutters its blue wings very hard and catches the sunlight just right, it blinds the baby jaguar just long enough to get away! Amy’s tiny finger tapped at the picture of the cat. Amy, said Mo, smoothing a hand over the wild yellow hair, the baby jaguar is just a baby. But even Blue Morphos get tired, and who is to say that the sun is just where you need it to be to manage those blinding flashes of blue no matter how hard you flutter in the warmth of the jaguar’s breath? Make no mistake, she wished she could tell Amy. There in her silent cottage, with the reflected white ripples high on her walls, Polly felt his arm slip around her shoulders, the rough suede palm of the racing glove brushing against her light shirt, and she had no more dazzling blue in her to blind him. Oh, make no mistake, Amy, even if your mother tells you that the baby jaguar is just a baby. The baby jaguar – he nearly held her in his arms as she saw the bed pillow move in – is still a jaguar.
