This kicked me just as hard in the feels as it did the first time. I can absolutely relate to the money worry from both sides; it used to stress me out when I was a poor student with a working boyfriend, and it stressed out my husband when we got together and I had a decent career.

It can be hard to believe that someone is willing to part with their money to make you happy, but speaking for myself… I'm willing to spend money to make myself happy, and if making you happy makes me happy… Then it's a good and sound investment that makes two people happier!

Besides, time itself is a valuable and limited resource. If I'm willing to invest a decent amount of my time with you, it's only logical that I'm willing to pay so I can enjoy more of it.

The comments here are really validating. It's good to see this rang true to so many people, and we weren't the only people who struggled to make those connections at some point in our lives. Just another way in which you managed to connect deeply with your readers, Notos. :)

(Also, a good place to stop reading for the night!)

"My arms! It ripped off both of my arms!"

I forgot how you made it absolutely explicit what poor Vinnie was being subjected to!
