She felt like the only way to redeem herself was to make up for that loss by giving someone else the opportunity to live a long and healthy life.
Later on in the book, Annie becomes very casually terrifying, as if it were natural for her. On page 148, she says to Paul, "I'll kill you if you don't!" in response to him asking if he should continue with his writing. At this point in the book, Paul seems to be getting used to the nightmares that
