My whole life has been dictated by someone else. Someone who’s been saying, “You will.” And now, now I feel like I’ve discovered my own voice. And it says, “I may.”
I don’t know if you can hear me. I never meant for any of this to happen. You don’t deserve this. You deserve your daughter. To mother her, teach her to love. To be joyful and proud. I’m sorry.[to Maeve]
Humans will always choose what they understand over what they do not. But the only animals left in this world are the ones who they subjugated, who curl at their feet, or those who learn to flee at the very sound of their approach. There’s nothing in between.
