"Earlier? Yes," she confessed with a sigh and then a self-depreciating laugh. "I really do not take rejection well. I guess I need to work on that."
The'ara knew in her heart why this was. After waiting for Shale for so many anxiety-ridden years, she knew her trust and self-confidence had been shattered.
She wanted to believe Shale had died because that would have left her with a favorable impression of him.

She wouldn't have felt nearly as betrayed if it wasn't Shale's idea in the first place.
