It’s because you tell me one thing, but your eyes tell me another, your heart tells me another. Your heart was beating faster than mine today. Why won’t you open it up to me?”
Penelope Ward, Neighbor Dearest
“You’re perfect for me, baby. I always knew that, never doubted it.”
Penelope Ward, Neighbor Dearest
