|Swoonworthiest Moment: “ 'I misspoke,' he said in a steady voice. 'She doesn’t need me to make sure she has enough food or a place to live—that is my privilege, but she doesn’t need me to do that. She doesn’t need me to keep her safe or to make her a whole person. She doesn’t need me to do anything except love her. Which I do.' ” —Fire Touched|
