The Handmaid's Tale Part 7: Night

Offred lies in bed, on edge with desire. She will not die from lack of sex but from lack of love. The ones she loves are missing persons, as she is for them. Offred believes Luke's dead body is lying in the woods, a bullet through his head. She also believes he is sitting, sick and dirty, in a prison cell somewhere, and she believes he was never caught at all but smuggled to safety by some group of resistors. This last belief is what keeps Offred alive.
