“ I fell in love with her when we were together, then fell deeper in love with her in the years we were apart. ”

And I'm supposed to sit by, while you date boys and fall in love with someone else, get married...? And meanwhile, I'll die a little bit more every day, watching.
And I wondered if love was too weak a word for what he felt, what he'd done for me. For what I felt for him.
I wanted to know that he would be okay if I died. I wanted to not be a grenade, to not be a malevolent force in the lives of people I loved.
You don't love someone because they're perfect, you love them in spite of the fact that they're not.
