When I’m around Tessa despite my greatest efforts to stay unobtrusive, I act contemptuously, I mean I can’t even pretend to like her enough to attract minimal attention. Geez, I just turn into a brute of a girl when I start talking about her, it’s just, well, I wish her life ended when the nurse first set her in that ether following her birth, that would solve all my “problems”.
