- Every time he answers I have to to your Scott, you can’t protect everyone, your hands shake a little more and you want to tell him I don’t want to see you die.
- Every time he tells you I am responsible when something goes out of control you want to stop him and tell him you are not responsible for the entire world.
- Every time he asks if you are okay, you want to tell him my best friend is an altruist who doesn’t know how to stop.
- Every time he just stares at you when you say yes, you wonder if he can smell your concern and you are tempted to confess him that your last four panic attacks were filled with I don’t wand to see you die. I don’t want to see you die. I don’t want—
- Every time he tells you I have to do something, I can’t just you want to grab him by the shoulders and tell him that he can just whatever he wants because he doesn’t have to throw all the weight of the world on his back.
- Every time you are discussing a plan of action and he is always in a dangerous position, all you want to do is tell him that your last six nightmares were about him dying and how the world died with him amid the smell of gasoline, and blood.
- Every time he catches someone from falling, or carries a person that can’t walk, or protects someone from dangerous creatures or takes the pain away from someone, you want to tell him how much you want to do the same for him. But you are only human.
- Every time he gets hurt you get scared because suddenly you are way too aware of the fact that he could cause his own death for caring too much. And you want to stand in front of him and explain how when you said that he would have to take you with him, you weren’t lying.
You want to tell him that he isn’t selfish. But you are. — J.E.
