just a couple lines

"Being alone too long taught her to be afraid of people. 

The only references she has for intimacy or depth are sexual. 

All touches feel inappropriate and wrong. 

You can only hold her if she's safe inside her armor. 

We tried to uncover her pain - 

tried to let it breathe so it could heal -

but her fear bled out so rapidly,she scared us too. 

So now we hold her through her armor 

and we let her protect the wound."
