What could you do? Not much. Not with him standing right there. If you tried to slip her a note, he might have seen it. It's probably best for her that you didn't do anything. It's sad, but sometimes, there's just nothing we can do.

Agreeing with Suki.

I just take those instances
as a reminder from the Infinite
that this is going on all the time -

and of how far I've come.

If they call you back about it and you get her alone
that's one thing
but an abuser is NEVER
going to let her be by herself.

Best to take it for a sign and remember how far we've come.

And to know that there's never NOT going to be someone who may need help.
