I won't ask him for help ever again. I can't. Not if this is what happens. I care about him too much. I've broken him. And now I am ruining Claire's life and Avery's life and Bess's and Annabelle's. Not to mention what could be happening to Lydia and Anna because of me. Because I wasn't strong enough.
I can't handle this anymore. I'll protect him, and I'll find his children and then I am leaving. For good.
