no differences between

Sophie leaned back in the current, her arms carefully holding her body rigid against the two worn smooth monoliths in the fast flowing water. These would be her hearse bearers. Her tombstones. She should have asked Anna to make a note that she wanted these in the graveyard bearing her body forever.

Anna would have remembered and done just this without questions. Amy here just wanted to know why.

And this time, Sophie decided that she could not tell Amy why. Amy had to learn that after someone steals your identity, your soul, you can find no differences between staying and going, between life and death, between air and water, between stone and body. This was something that no amount of probing could tell her.
