           Abby felt an aching sadness as she saw the puppy dog hope in Connor’s eyes, even though, deep down, he probably expected another rejection.

It wasn’t Connor’s fault that his innocence reminded her of how her own innocence had been taken from her. She didn’t want to hate him for his childlike optimism, just because she had been forced to grow up so quickly. And, Abby finally realised, she didn’t want to punish Connor just because she no longer trusted any man with her heart and body.

            Connor deserved better. He deserved to understand why.

            “Connor, we need to talk.”
