Mary: He's not that bad.. nice ass, pretty eyes, broad shouldered..but he is mean to Mattie... and he is evil. But what does that make me? Oh. well, he'll be
succumbed to me soon.
Matthew:(thinking) Thank god, they hate each other. But I still have to protect
Mary, but how can I fight someone I envy? I have to be strong. Be strong Matthew, and do not fall to the evil elf ways.
