?I said I?d always protect you,? Elijah whispered, his voice breaking as tears pricked his eyes. Maybe they could fight it, but the possibility of losing Norah was all too real. He hated that this - her brothers wedding - was the place this conversation was happening, but he couldn?t hold in his fears and anxieties anymore. His hands went to her waist as they stood there with their foreheads together. He lifted his head to kiss the space between her brows and then pulled her into a hug.

Norah shook her head stubbornly, tears flooding her eyes, ?I can?t let you,? Norah told him. If he confessed, they couldn?t do anything to save him; she would lose him forever. If it were her, they could still fight it. ?If you did that for me, I would have to live with that guilt every day of my life and it would break me. Elijah, I?m barely hanging on as it is,? Norah said, fearing what would happen if he went to prison. She didn?t want to be dramatic but daniella might just lose both her parents. Norah pulled her hand out of his and grabbed his face, pressing her forehead to his, ?this is not something you can save me from,? she whispered. It was a conversation they?d obviously been avoiding all week; they?d both just been walking around on eggshells, afraid to address it.

Elijah sighed out sharply through his nose and laced his fingers with hers. ?Norah, you didn?t do anything wrong! You saved our lives by doing what you did, you don?t deserve to go to prison,? he said insistently. ?If they want me then they can have me, because Daniella needs you! She doesn?t need me the same way.?

Astrid knew there was no sense blaming herself; Norah would have gone no matter what she said or did. "I know, I know. I'm sorry," Astrid said, managing to smile again, "I'm married," Astrid said, still in disbelief.

Noticing her friend?s mood dropping, Sadie took her shoulders. ?Hey don?t go blaming yourself. Especially today. It?s a celebration, we?ve gotta act like it.?

"I wish I hadn't let her go that day," Astrid said quietly, her smile slipping as she looked down herself and her wheelchair with distaste. If she wasn't so trapped, maybe she could have stopped Norah from going to that park.

Sadie frowned, watching them go. "I wish I could do more to help. I feel like I ought to."

"Absolutely not," Norah said, fixing him with a hard stare; they'd had the same conversation many times over the last few days and Norah would not budge on her position, "That is what they want. They want you," Norah said, squeezing his hand tightly, "I will not let you throw your life away for me. Not when...when I deserve this," Norah choked out.

?Maybe, I hate dragging everyone down,? Elijah said, reaching to take her hand in his. ?Norah...you should just let me take the fall,? he said softly.

Jaime wanted to give Elijah some hope to hold on to; he didn't want them to give up and run away from the problem when he could still help them. "This sucks," Jaime siad to Jasper as he watching Elijah limp away.

Norah nodded, "I know, but..." she shook her head, "I'm sorry Astrid, we're spoiling your day," Norah said, not wanting to talk about her situation any longer. Norah spotted Elijah walking off on his own; she excused herself from the girls and made her way to her husband. "Should we go soon?" she asked him, sensing that his mood was going down hill fast.
