I swore to never fall in love. I’d seen far too many good men and women fall into the trap of valuing one specific life over their duty to protect as many as possible. Enjoying sex, intimacy, that’s all right, but far too many lives were lost thanks to stupid value judgements about saving their woman, their man, over saving many lives.
At this point, I’m sure, you’re expecting me to say something about how I then met someone, and how that all changed.
Well, her name was Clarissa. And pushing her away, yeah, that was tough.
But I managed.
