She looks up at him and wipes her tears from her eyes. "You were and still are the first person I have loved since my ex of 3 months dumped me infront of a entire camp. I have tried moving on from it by fighting until I was almost killed. My leader gave me the simple job of watching OT. Like the fool I am, I met you. You made me complete. Every witty thing you said, everytime you touched me, everytime you said you loved me... Now I know that I fuc<_>ked up by not telling you sooner. I tried. You can't nessicarly yell that out at a camp. I don't move on fast. I don't drop people that easily. I love you, Annon. Only you. I know now that you couldn't see through my deceptions and love me back. I fully understand it. I have been meaning to leave the Jessica character and disapear myself. Perfect timing." She smiles weakly and walks out
