            Abby won’t admit she’s afraid of anything. Certainly not of Connor.

No, not of Connor. It’s more what Connor represents, what he offers. Safety. Security. Loyalty. Commitment. Love.

Abby knows these things are more dangerous, and have far more power to hurt than any of the creatures they face. These are the things that she doesn’t want to admit she wants, or needs, because if she does admit she needs Connor, then it will be so much harder when she loses him.

And Abby won’t admit that the thought of losing Connor is the thing she fears above all else.

Connor knows there’s something wrong. He might be clueless about a lot of things, but he knows Abby, and he knows when she’s hiding something from him.

He also knows he should push harder, ask the question, but he’s too afraid of the answer. Too afraid of the words that he suspects in his darkest thoughts; that this was a mistake, that she doesn’t want him, that she only said yes because he really was the last man on earth.

Connor knows he won’t push Abby because it is easier to live with his fears than to hear those words.
