You forgot how much she used to care. It's been too long-- too long to remember her secrets or remember the way her eyes lit up when she told them. It's true-- the truth really does set you free, and it's been too long for her to remember what freedom tastes like. She's too afraid to remember that. She's too afraid to remember anything, and that's the problem.

She's got empty glass-green eyes and an empty heart and an empty smile, and you haven't known what to make of it.

So you didn't even try.

You didn't try and you won't try and it's just too bad because she really does need saving. And no matter how many times you lie to yourself, you really do care. You care too much to fail her-- but you've failed at saving yourself. So how are you supposed to pretend you'll succeed at helping her?

Because you won't. And you're afraid to care.

She's too important to risk losing.

Yeah, I guess. I think the implications are that if she does... And you're too late.

I'm not. It is never too late for hope. It won't leave without permission. Ask Pandora.

Sure. And what? Why Pandora?

Have you ever heard the story of pandora's box? [Well it was a pithos but whatever]

Pandora was given a box by Zeus and told not to open it. But, her mortal flaw was curiosty, and so when she opened it all the deamons of the world came out. Sickness, evil, deamons, monsters all fled into the world. But there was one that remained. Hope would not leave the box unless given permission, and so stayed there when it was opened.

The story is much simplified in my version- but the same meaning is there.

Hope is never gone unless we allow it to be :]

Yes, I have.

And ah, I understand your point. But then why are so many people hopeless?

because some people enjoy feeling miserable

I disagree. People forget what it's like to be happy.

I've never met anyone who liked being miserable.
