It is paranoia based off of years of losing.
You've seen me around this town, grasping at straws made of men and aching for a heart to call my own... Well, you gave one to me, didn't you?
It might have belonged to Gus, once upon a time. It might keep me alive and it might shatter with my sorrow too easily. But it was always yours, strong and open, dark red with your sweet breath.
And you'll break it. I know you will. You won't mean to, but you will.
Olivia watches Natalia walk out of the courtroom. Rafe has his arm around the woman's shoulders.
Frank follows soon after, keeping two steps behind mother and son.
And Olivia cannot move, cannot beg her legs to begin walking or ask her eyes to squeeze shut.
Surrounded by polished wood and self-sacrificing statements, she stands alone.
You won't mean to. But you will.
