I want to warn her – yet I know how invested she is in protecting him.
She’s got his back.
He’s told his story so well, she didn’t even bother to double-check with me – even though she was a common friend. My sorrows, grief, anger, despair – it’s not even there. Not even “a thing”. She is certain he is beyond awesome. She supports him in becoming the leader that he wants to become. She paves the way – makes sure it can happen.
She is encapsulated by his story of self.
Like I was.
I know that when she no longer offers as a “staircase” to… She will become useless to him. Devoid of meaning. Tossed out – not really mattering that much.
She might reach out then.
Do I reach out to her now?
