Oh, I could imagine it wasn't something you wanted - but of course it is her decision. I can't say I think it's a bad one. Henry, remember that while her older self as more accepting of your ways... it was your older self that she was accustomed to. You had both grown in the relationship to reach that point where you had found a happy medium. Love, dollface, is not a diamond to be held, but a flower that needs to grow and be nurtured.
There are no easy solutions to real love and relationships.
And that's not something you'd have listened to before.
We've struck our deal, your lady and I - and while she may not remember the boon she owes in the morning, I'm sure it's not one that will be an undue burden.
