What still bothers me is that Narumi and Mevin probably never had the chance to physically talk it over face to face. In this age of the internet, instant digital connections and skype etc, I'm sure they've talked about it over whatever channels were available. But with her over in Japan with the operation and the rehab, and Mervin in Canada awaiting her recovery when the decision was made, it's sad that they've probably never really, I don't know, hugged and said goodbye in person.
They seemed so connected both off and on ice, with Narumi seemingly having such trust and faith in Mervin, saying at one point that she'll choose him over the Olympics, their spit was such a shock to me.
I guess I'll never get over it, though of course I wish them both the best in their continuing careers.
