‘I’m too broken to attempt to fix you. I’m also too tired to try.’ Yara screamed as the wind buffeted her sideways to the foot of the mountain where she landed heavily on her backside, hitting her head on a pile of rock and magma.
David looked down at her, the muscles of his jaw working quietly. He began softly,‘ You’ll continue running away from things and people and emotions. Anything that does not cut your definition of perfect, you’ll run away from. You’d run until you eventually run past the one who really loves you and then you’ll run into the arms of who you think is your vision of perfect. He’d do everything perfectly and you’ll fall perfectly. And then when he has you down under, he’d revert to being an asshole. He’ll ride you and you’d regret every last mean word you said to all the people who really loved you.’ By now he was screaming.
