I've been thinking about my Main Character's relationships recently. I've been thinking about the woman who needs help and keeps asking for it. Does she really need my character's help, or can she help herself? How can she learn to help herself? Is everything out of her control?
She reacted to the anger, to my stance, taking a step back. Sadness filled her eyes again, "Taryn, I'm so sorry."
"Ya, Kaitlyn, I bet you are." I clenched my jaw.
"I just want you, need you, in my life." I could see the tears pooling, threatening.
I hardened my stance, taking another deep breath. "I'm sorry Kaitlyn. What I need to do is move on. No more Ben, and I'm sorry, but no more you."
She took a step towards me, I moved back, towards the doorway, "But he loves you. I... I love you too. You're my best friend."
