“How can I protect her like this? I can’t even concentrate. Nothing makes sense anymore. Have you ever loved someone, Kitty?”
“Have I ever loved? Once, guess you can tell with me being single it never worked out.”
He leaned against the wall and briefly closed his eyes. “I think I love her.”
“Well, that’d explain why nothing makes sense…Come on, get in the car, I’ll drive you.”
He shook his head. “I’ll see you later.”
“Where are you going? Please, let me give you a lift?”
“No. I need space to think.”
“Anathon, remember what you were sent here to do, protect her...That’s what’s important, above everything.”
He nodded, turning away.
Kitty watched him disappear into the crowd and grumbled as she made her way back to the car. “This human emotional stuff I can do without, way too complicated.”
