“Degrading. Humiliating…”

“Maybe you should sort out your values.”

Her head had dropped again, but it snapped up at that comment. “You’re insane if you think there’s anything… bright about love. It’s… it draws you in with its… but it’s all just a fucking lie. You’re all insane.”

“Yeah. I’m insane.”
