Torie shook her head. "No...I don't take what is done is done as an answer." She replied.
Alex's jaw dropped. "Torie, can I talk to you?" He replied, grabbing her arm and pulling her aside.
"What the-" She replied, caught off guard. Once they were a good distance away from Heather and Kevin, Alex looked at his sister. "An Ellingson?... He's an Ellingson?" Alex replied, shocked.
Torie nodded. "Yep. And he wants me. Mom is overjoyed by the fact that I could capture the heart of someone so high born. Hell, she flat out said she was shocked." She replied, bitterly at the end.
Alex shook his head. "Torie...what happened to that fiery spirit of finding love and marrying for it. What about finding another Ryan?"
Torie looked away and rubbed her shoulders. "Kevin and I...we can eventually love one another. We are already on our way there. Besides, its not like Mom nor Dad nor David is going to ever let me choose otherwise. At least it someone that I can actually live with and not someone I will detest for my entire life." She replied. "As for finding another Ryan...the only Ryan I will ever have is dead. I might as well accept that like you all have said. He's not coming back."
Being single doesn't make you weak, it means that you are strong enough to be on your own; Being alone could be a good thing, because there is no drama involved in your life, no pain, and free to do what ever you want. Life is too short to be chasing those who aren't even worth fighting for, you are worth more than that.
