Lyle does not know that I’ve seen him do it. If he can do it just for himself, he can do it for the both of us.
My problem is how to ask him. I have a sense that he will protect himself by just denying it. But that won’t get us anywhere.
Maybe if I knew why he hides that ability, it would make it easier to ask.
If I am projecting the reasoning behind my actions upon him, it’s like we are cut from the same cloth. I can understand his reticence.
He may have no more control over it than I do over those things that disappear when I perceive that they threaten our well being.
