“I’m starting to think you like prisons,” he says, idly knocking his knuckles against the wall. “And that you have the worst taste in men.”
Okay I’m defending my lightning child here. She might have made mistakes with Maven, but that absolutely does not mean you say something like this. In case you haven’t noticed, Maven is still and open wound. (Since when he said this, the bowl of bones happened like, a day or two ago at most) You don’t twist the knife where someone is already bleeding out. I get that you’re mad. But guilt and regret is 90% of the reason why Mare is really not okay in this book. I know that you want her to trust you, but this is not the way to go about it. Mare is far from perfect. She’s trying to put everyone else’s needs before her own, to the point where she can barely sleep and forgets to eat. She’s trying. Everything she does, she’s trying to help. And it’s taking a toll on her. She doesn’t need you adding onto the weight on her shoulders. For everyone who’s going to get mad at me for making this post: We all know Maven isn’t perfect, but neither is Cal. He’s flawed too. Yes, he’s had everything taken from him. Yes, he does deserve better, but stop treating him like this perfect angel that never does anything wrong. He’s a part of why Mare is almost at her breaking point.
