And most writers like it that way.

But the funny thing was, once you welcomed in a breeze, there was no stopping what came next.

They have an incredibly hard time reconciling with the idea that a person who makes them smile can still be capable of terrible things.

Daneca seems to persist in a belief that if I would just listen and understand how bad my bad choices are, I’d stop making them.
