Abby McDonald, Getting Over Garrett Delaney
You don’t understand. Don’t pretend that you do. You don’t know what it’s like… having everything that makes you who you are strip-mined so you can be… a good little slave.
I am not a dancer, or an artist, or a hero. I am not longer a daughter or a lover…victim or student or slave. I am and I always be…someone’s assassin.
You know, I have someone I’m in love with. Yeah. I’m no good, am I?
All I wanted to do was to make something beautiful.
