He hates the ways she reminds him of Cutter. Helen has the same fascination with nature, the same determination. The same stubbornness.
Sometimes they argue long into the night; about the past, about the future, about Nick Cutter. Sometimes they hold each other in the darkness. Fear, comfort and pain twisted together. Afterwards, they both try to pretend they don’t care.
They are the last two people alive, searching for a way to prevent the future, and united in their love for a dead man.
Connor wonders if this is why he can’t leave Helen, even when he hates her.
