Maybe you should accept the fact that you’ve tried to be someone you’re not for so long and that no matter what you did, those bastards were never happy. They were never satisfied. They never gave a damn, did they?” He looks at me and for a moment he seems almost human. For a moment I want to believe him. For a moment I want to sit on the floor and cry out the ocean lodged in my
throat.
“It’s time you stopped pretending,” he says, so softly.
“Juliette—” He takes my face in his gloved hands, so unexpectedly gentle.”
