“There we go. Something happened to the cousin. So you two got paired together instead. And you two work so well together, it’s a kind of kismet. Only there’s a little heartbreak on both sides.”
On both sides? Is there someone Othala wants to be with, but can’t because she’s promised to Victor?
“This is your plan?” Victor sneered. “Hate to break it to you, but we’ve talked this shit out. It’s called communication. You won’t be revealing any big secrets to break us up.”
Honestly, I think she’s just curious.
Communication, huh. You should tell the Travelers a thing or two about that.
“No. You two are totally honest with each other. Kudos. Thing is, you’re just not very honest with yourselves. You know why you’re getting so angry at Othala getting hurt? You’re really quite insecure in your attachment to her.”
Oh, is she matchmaking? Trying to get them to realize that they have grown to genuinely care for each other?
“Oh god, this is lame.” The water rippled as Victor let his head drop down to rest on the flooded street.
I love how done he sounds.
