Quandary Resolution 8433
phiz, enfeoff, umbra, Simon Pure, n. and adj.

Meanwhile, on the A train, Benny Broigus and Mamie Goldfisch were anonymous travellers noticed by no-one, as they hurtled beneath the city, seeming to have no connection to the incidents that had propelled them to take this headlong journey into an unknown future, they still held hands, saying little, communicating by the slightest touch, as Mamie smiled and her skin seemed to say, to Benny's: "you should see your phiz," and in response, as his free hand rubbed absently at his face, Mamie sensed that he was offering to enfeoff himself to her, surrendering his separateness, to be as one with her, and this she acknowledged with the slightest inflection of her pinkie, for they were truly in the umbra of their shared past, no longer strangers, no longer individuals, but a couple with a single purpose—to survive; then Benny stirred and looked at Mamie, enveloping her in the intensity of his gaze, and she blushed to her roots, for she knew what he was thinking, and she nodded, and with that, their future was sealed and they sloughed off their old identities as, riding into the wide blue yonder, they became Mr and Mrs Simon and Simone Pure, till death us do part.
