Ronin, I-I don’t know what to say- she was your...

I’m holding a heart here in my hand.

I’ve got a great girl.

“I have always loved you. And I always will love you.”

I’m glad you can still smile.
Only when I’m with you.

SHAKAAR: Sometimes I get the sense that maybe, just maybe, she feels the same way. But I could be wrong. I’m afraid to say anything because it might ruin our friendship. But if I don’t, I could be letting something precious slip through my fingers. 


Nerys, just tell me one thing. If you’d known how I felt about you, if I’d said something years ago, do you think things might’ve been different?


For the longest time, whenever anyone would use my name, the first thing I would think of was what it meant — “nothing.” What better way to describe me? I had no family, no friends, no place where I belonged. I thought it was the most appropriate name anyone could give me.

And then I met you.
