"And you're going to give him another chance, aren't you?"

No, he was not one to beat around the bush.

"I'm the one that needs a second chance."

I could feel his nerves tense. He wasn't happy. Tears burned at the sides of his eyes, but he didn't let them out. No, he was not one to cry. I could hear the anger shaking in his voice as he cursed.

"So he's giving you another chance?"

I could barely manage to whisper my next words. "I don't know. He's... thinking about it."

His fist went slamming into the wall, and for once,I wasrelieved that I was the only one who could hear it. Sickness gripped my stomach along with the feeling thatI was soon to retch.

"I'm not like him either."

I sighed. He'd never pick. No one would be good enough.

"I've lived in my mind for too long. I'm going crazy. I can't function anymore." I paused, knowing that the next few words would kill him. "I need someone real... Morgan."
