Watching you walk away was the hardest thing I’d ever done. To let you go and not beg for forgiveness. But I stood still, pummeled by duty and class and my own damned determination, knowing that if I accepted your kisses, I’d condemn us both to pain and ultimate separation. That they’d kill you if they knew how I felt.
There was only one thing to do. I turned your love into hate, even as I did so, I hated myself.
Forgive me. Shackled by cruel fate, my heart broke as I drove you away.
I still have your neckerchief.
