I thought you were my friend, the one who I could trust. I guess I was wrong.

Wrong to trust you.

You're not lying. I know because faery can't lie.

You're just like him. Trying to use me, trying to gain my trust.

Well, I'm not going to.

You interrupted my life.

You knew that I didn't want this.

Worst of all, I trusted you.

That's the worst kind of betrayal.
