    I feel like I've been dying inside without him.

    He called me his 'perfect princess' when we were together. And he treated me like one. No one has ever been so kind or gentle towards me and I've never felt safer. I've never seen anyone as mixed up, emotional, and guarded as him though and he never liked to talk about things...
