"Smile?" Her arrogant dark looks darting in every direction. "What is there to smile about?"
"I don't need a friend, Leah. I need answers. Charles gave up everything to fight for us. He had no business enlisting. Charles gave up his dream of being an astrophysicist. He was at brilliant human being. How is it possible he could he come home from war only to be killed in cold blood in the comfort of his home."
"Life is filled with unanswered questions, Giselle. This may be one more thing you'll never understand. Maybe Charles fulfilled his destiny here on earth. It doesn't have to be what you thought it should be because it's not your plan. But, you don't have the right to go around hurting innocent people."
"Save it, Leah. This world took the only person I've ever loved and all my pain will rain on them until I join him on the other side." Her fists clenched so hard that her nails cut into her skin and her pulse raced, almost as if she would explode. A vein in her neck popped out as her eyes locked on a smiling couple in passing, unsuspecting of what they were about to encounter. #LiteraryJunkie
