There is no love between them; there is only passion and burning desire.
But for Susan, this is enough. She has loved and lost before, and she can’t handle losing again.
The lust is much easier to deal with.

I hear it from everyone,
I'm not who they say I should be
I'm Different, I'm me
The smart one,
The best seeker,
You had it all!
Even a girl who loved you,
So why'd you do it?
I've been pushed too far
The tornado's sucked me in,
and I doubt I'll ever see the light
Every time something happened
You were my shoulder to cry on
Now I'm crying about you
Something I've only done once
You always told me
"Life is like Quidditch,
You play for the thrill."
One of the thousand things
You taught me

Andromeda is testing her boundaries and the limits placed upon her. She's rebelling a bit from the ideals that she was brought up with.

I'm sorry for the long wait for the next chapter. It's finally finished. I graduated high school in 2010 and then entered college. It was quite a stressful time and quite the transition. I also lost the chapter once when my computer crashed. I had struggled with it for so long (writer's block) and when it was almost done, there it went into technological oblivion. I was so frustrated, I couldn't bring myself to try rewriting it until recently.
