Surrounded by tombstones, haunted by a relationship she had refused to mourn, the blonde fell silent. All of the insults, all of the questions she had for him were settling in a grave of their own. Perhaps he had been right to leave.
Looking at a tombstone on which she could easily imagine their names being engraved, she spoke. "I loved you," she grieved the notion that their love should have been enough. "I love you," she corrected, convinced that the man she had known was still somewhere within the confines of the broken man standing next to her. "I thought that you had left me for selfish reasons, that you had discarded me without consideration." Feeling herself crumple, she wrapped her arms around her delicate frame. Though he voice remained steady, she felt a tear roll down her cheek. "But I realize I was wrong. You left because you wanted to protect me," she nodded as the belief started to settle. This selfless gesture seemed more in line with the man she loved. "You decided to protect me, instead of trusting me."
The tip of her fingers dug into the flesh covering her ribcage. "Marriage cannot exist without trust," she whispered finally willing to accept their fate.
