That poor young woman... to think she also suffers the pain of…

(Older) It's happened to me ~ finally...
That poor young woman... to think she also suffers the pain of unrequited love. I wish I knew who it was, but until then, I ought to think of a way to make her feel better.

Hm, perhaps some sort of consolation gift... no one should have to suffer this on their own, regardless of what sir Coolidge said.

Sir Coolidge, pretending the matter doesn't exist will have the same effect. ... there's no painless route to go when it come to unrequited love, but she deserves to have some closure to this chapter to her life before she can move on. You are the only one who can give her that closure.

What she must be going through... as soon as possible, you should end this charade once and for all. You won't have time to deal with this when you become a father, and she'll suffer all the more as time goes by.

It's not that easy.

Of course it isn't. But if you value her friendship, you'll do what must be done. The longer you wait, the more damage you'll cause. And if you won't do anything, I will. I won't allow your cowardice to harm her any longer.

I'm not a coward! Damn it, you don't know anything about me or what's going on!

You are a soon-to-be father dealing with the stress and doubts of your abilities. You have a close friend who loves you, who knows for how long, and you ignore it when you learn about the matter.

I feel I should apologize on her behalf because it seems we both have a penchant for falling in love with people who are not even aware of how they ever made us feel. But regardless of that, we should be set straight. Sir Sandor set me straight. You cannot hide behind your marriage and pretend this matter does not exist, or that it's irrelevant. But that's exactly what you're doing, and that is the very definition of cowardice.

If she takes it badly, I don't know what to do.

Of course she'll take it badly. She's already taking it badly. But I imagine she doesn't know how to act around you because she knows her feelings compromise her friendship with you. You have to assure her that no matter what happens, you'll always be there for her as a friend... and you won't think any less of her for what's happened.

We can't help how we feel, sir Coolidge. I know you're good with being honest and can come off as very rude... but if she is me, she will respect your honesty and forwardness. And... focus on a brighter future. Let her love again... someone who will return her love. You want that for her, don't you?

Telling her that's almost hypocritical.
23rd-May-2008 04:04 am (UTC)
And why is that?
23rd-May-2008 04:06 am (UTC)
Stella and I aren't married back home because she died.
23rd-May-2008 04:11 am (UTC)
... that... really makes even more sense why she...

... despite that... this isn't your world. Certainly, we all understand that. Everything is different, with the dead becoming alive and whatnot. To see your true love alive again... you acted quite naturally.

Here or there, anyone else would only ever be a second choice. I can't do that-- to Chloe, to Shirley, or to Stella.
23rd-May-2008 04:21 am (UTC)
... she probably understands this already. This is exactly why she must be set free. You need to tell her in person that you cannot give her what she desires. Tell her she deserves better; someone who will love her for who she truly is, not someone who would only use her as a replacement. You... you must give her hope that there's someone better for her out there, someone not far away.

... that's what I'm trying to believe for myself, anyway... but you're making her afraid to open herself and love again.
