it broke her heart to know that he felt this way. she’d been through something like this before,
and like last time, she felt helpless.
she knew more about what he was going through this time round. but she was unable to comfort him in the way that he needed.
she felt angry at the people around him who didn’t give him what he needed. she wished she could scream at the friends who left just as easily as they came. she wished she could shake his parents into giving him the love he needed.
her heart broke a little when she heard him say that the only way to be free was to leave the past completely. she felt disappointed that she let herself be disappointed in his wish to abandon her… that she thought about herself when she should have been thinking about him.
she wanted to help.
