Chapter 82 pushing past.
- Brian spends the day close to Elizabeth trying to be there for her in every way she needs. He sees she is a bit different than the woman he first met. She isn't as free in herself as she was. She stayed close to him during the day and talked to him, just no passionate kisses or touches or anything of that kind, like she used to. He knows what Ethan has done to her, hurt her and set their life back. He knows it's going to take a lot to regain all the trust she used to have. It just makes him hate Ethan even more.
- Feeling more and more that he was and is interfering in their relationship, and at the same time hurting her. He never expected Ethan to go this far, this was unforgivable. He didn’t only take away parts of Elizabeth he was at the same time, making their relationship suffer. He knew it would be a while to regain what they had, he was losing it and it wasn’t even his fault. He knew he was going to have to be patient, and go slow. He was fine with that, he just hoped, in the end, they could get it back.
- That night they head to bed, he sees Elizabeth go into the bathroom to get ready for bed. He just gets ready and slides into bed, wondering if those Flannel PJ's would be back or if she would feel more at ease with him, now that she told him the truth. He still hasn't seen the marks on her wrists or anywhere else. Trying to take it slow and let her show him. Not even wanting to see what Ethan did because he knew it would set him off and he wouldn't be able to obtain himself.
