No, I can’t say I am very sorry for that… A little more company would do you well, I think.
But I’ve been here the whole time, you know. Perhaps there’s a reason I’ve taken care to be out of your way?
And now you’re my therapist, it seems. Contrary to popular belief, I am quite happy to be by myself. I don’t need you to shove me into social situations.
And pray tell why have you been avoiding me? Afraid I might actually tell you the truth about the books?
