Everyone kept trying to use you to hold me back even when you weren't there. That I was nothing more than Captain America's girl Friday, and that was the only reason I was given the opportunities that I was. I can't imagined what they would have said if you'd survived.
I love you, Steve. I always have, and I always will. But we both have more to our lives now than we did during the war. And there's no sense in trying to backtrack when we have places to move forward to. We both deserve a happiness that's can be sustained beyond this reality.
