The vulnerability undid him even as the strength brought him pride. And the whole of her brought him love beyond the measuring of it.
Of all he’d craved in his life, all he’d dreamed of having, all he’d fought to gain by fair means or foul, he’d never imagined having such such as she as his own. Never imagined himself the man he’d come to be because she was.
All it takes is one bad day to reduce the sanest man alive to lunacy.
