I tried to save her.
I tried to save her from the pain and emotional turmoil that was headed her way.
Because I’ve experienced this pain multiple times in my life.
I felt I was the best man for the job. I was the most well equipped to handle her.
I felt like this is what Erik would have wanted for her.
But how can I save someone who turns a deaf ear and a blind eye to me, Erik?
If Cassee actually took the time to communicate with me, she would slowly but surely being to understand why I did, and why I do, all the things I did.
If Cassee actually knew my past. If she actually took the time to trade war stories with me… she would know who I really am.
