Maura Isles "But I Am A Good Girl" 4.03
the science of infatuation: how to go from why won’t you love me to why won’t you fuck me in under three seconds | a bestseller by the sapphicly acclaimed dr. maura isles
But god, this is so sad. How many times in her career do you think Maura has encountered this?
Just being ignored - tucked away by herself with a glass of wine while she feels eyes moving over her and judging her.
And Frost is right there - right there.. and the feeling must be so familiar, because everyone leaves - everyone becomes a distance. Meters and miles. Just forgotten. She has grown so accustomed to it that is just something she naturally has learned to accept.
And you can tell she is lost in her thoughts - that she is struggling.
That not only does she love Jane - not only will she never have Jane, but that the one consistent person in her life - the person changed her, pulled her out of her shell, made her part of her family - is going to leave.
And maybe it won’t be in the literal sense - maybe Jane won’t become some Army wife on a base across the country or on the other side of the world.
But Jane is leaving - she is losing her to someone, and that is far worse than losing her to a place - because Jane will be right beside her and despite that, Maura knows she will still be alone.

IT’S NOT EVEN FUNNY ANYMORE
Well, we can be sure Maura has a type… Jane, the evil ADA agent, Riley - all tan-skinned, with long brown hair and on the less conventionally feminine side.
