"The problem is I want much more than that from you. You see, I can’t help it. I’m still in love with you. And as much as I wish that you were in love with me, I know you’re not. I could stay, I could try to make you fall in love with me, but we both know that won’t happen. Then I’d end up resenting you, and our friendship is far too important for me to let that happen. That’s why it’s better for both of us if I leave now."
Before I met her, my world was a much smaller place. I kept to myself. I didn’t need anyone else and I took pride in that. The truth is, I was ashamed of what I was, afraid that if people saw how truly different I was they would recoil from me. Lwaxana saw how different I was and she didn’t recoil. She wanted to see more. For the first time in my life, someone wanted me as I was. And that changed me forever. The day I met her, is the day I stopped being alone. And I want her to be part of my life from this day on.
