Waiting for the Sunrise
Eve was in pain. Constantly. But she was good at hiding it. Until he came. Until he came and he ruined everything. He saw through her crumbling facade, right down to her bare, dying soul. When she wore long sleeves in the warmth, he knew why. When her nose bled out of the blue, he knew why. And the worst part was that he wanted to help her.

He could never forget it no matter how much he wished he could.
