As he waited wrapped around her neck, Nevil noticed something that changed his life forever. A tag. A luggage tag that said: "Stop. I'm Not Yours!"
When Nevil read those words (yes, scarves can read), he felt deep down in his fibers that they were true.
At that moment, a voice over the loudspeaker announced that the flight to Des Moines was now boarding. Mrs. Pike hurried out of the gift shop, leaving Nevil behind.
Would Nevil ever find his way to happiness? He didn't know. But this was his chance and he had to take it.
