"Because I'm in love with her."
No one was more surprised and shocked by this than Christina. Even in this crazy situation they had gotten themselves into... she would have never expected this.
This was something she'd been waiting to hear for a little over two years.
Now here it was.
It wasn't that she didn't know, deep down anyway, she just never thought it would ever become anything else than something she held onto... Never thought it would be out there... that he would ever confess such a thing.
Not to her. Not about her.
Never about her.
Any other day, any other time, Brian would have been a close second if not pulling ahead. But not today. Not now.
He needed her to know. The world to know.
He didn't want to believe that this was the end, that he and his friends, his co workers, his Christina, weren't going to survive, but just in case...
It was something he knew he should have said a long time ago and if this was his final chance to say it to his Finny then he had to take it.
But he kept that hoep that somehow they would all make it to see tomorrow. That he would be given a chance to do something about this.
