It’s agony to let people see you so exposed. It takes a huge amount of trust, and for most of us, that trust was shattered long ago. But, like it or not, we need each other.. and we need each other desperately. My mother was right, the world is not safe for a girl like me. But maybe I am not safe for the world, either. And since I will never be able to experience real love, might as well put this curse to some use.
