Truth is, I am in love with him. I can’t ever tell him. Because if I did, then he’d tell me he loves me. He’d want to make me happy. He’d drop everything and make me his top priority. And he’d do it without a second thought.
But I can’t let him. They need him now–more than I need him. Unfortunate. Still true. They need him to protect my city, my friends, my brother. Maybe, someday, they won’t need him. I still will. Maybe we’ll get half a chance.
Until then, I’m in love with him. He can’t know.
