you’re protecting me again. I can understand your not wanting to talk about Rinax. I wasn’t there, you’re right. But I’m here now with you. We have to face this together.
: Well, there’s one good thing that will come from all this. When I first met you I didn’t know that your species lived only eight or nine years. I fell in love with you without knowing how lonely it would be to live without you
after you’re gone. Now that I’m going to die first I don’t have to worry about it.
Before I met you, eight or nine years seemed like an eternity
. It never occurred to me that anyone could live longer. Now that we’re together no matter how many years we have left it doesn’t seem like enough.
But the important thing is to cherish whatever time we have together, whether it’s a day or a decade.
