"We can't go on like this ... wanting each other so damnably..." His arms enfolded her as she burst into tears. His face was gray and haggard. "Christie, listen to me. Don't you see we can't go on like this, being together, wanting each other so damnably, without taking each other? There's not much future in that. " "It's the only future I want, Ross," she told him huskily when she had controlled her tears. "I want to belong to you, Ross. I want to be yours completely any time and all the time. If we can't be married for a while it doesn't matter ... Ross, I love you. I'll never love anyone else ... Never! Never!"
