“For the first time in her life, she wished she loved him less. It was dangerous to feel this way; she was like a naked infant exposed to the elements. Fragile and infinitely afraid. He could ruin her someday. Of that she had no doubt.”

He had taken her love for granted – like it was an asset he owned – but it hadn’t been an asset, it had been an investment. One he’d let sink.
