Before I could say thing more, she was standing directly in front of me, her nose just inches away from mine. “If you want to be Anna’s friend—a true friend—you will want her to be happy.” I opened my mouth to speak, but she placed her hand against my lips, silencing me. “Stephan Coleman makes her happy. You need to accept that and deal with it. Stop thinking about yourself for once and think about Anna. The man she loves is having his life dragged through the mud right now because of her. Think about how you would feel if something happened to me and you couldn’t do anything to stop it or help me.”
