"I keep thinking that there is some magic word or sentence that will cause him to wake up and realize that he loves me. If I thought that leaving him behind would force him to miss me, to notice just how much he needs me around, I'd walk away. But the truth is, there is no magic phrase, and he wouldn't even notice if I were gone; he'd let me keep walking, and never think to stop me. And that's what hurts the most - knowing that he would never, ever miss me."-Anonymous

"Once upon a time in a galaxy not entirely unlike our own, there was a girl. There was nothing extraordinary about this girl. She was by her own estimation a relatively simple sort, yet she was cursed. For as long as she could remember, boys had been something of a disaster. Boys either fell too hard, too fast, or not at all. She had long since given up on the notion of a functional relationship, which is why, she was surprised to find herself in the company of a boy who made her feel as if the curse had been lifted."
