Guinevere took a deep breath and squeezed out a smile,” I don’t want someone insignificant ruining our relationship. I’m not as immature and insensible as Ella, and I’m fine with you wanting to placate her. She’s just another toy of yours that you’ll lose interest in soon, after which she’ll be nothing, and there’s no need for me to stoop to her level…”
