Remember Me As I Am: Part 8

EDWARD OVERCOMPENSATES

AFTER THEY ARE BOTH DISCHARGED FROM PATHLIGHT, ED PURSUES A ROMANTIC RELATIONSHIP WITH JACKIE WHICH SHE RESISTS AT FIRST BUT EVENTUALLY GIVES IN BECAUSE SHE IS ALSO VERY LONELY FOR COMPANIONSHIP AND FEARS ED MAY LOSE INTEREST IN THEIR FRIENDSHIP IF SHE REBUFFS HIM YET AGAIN. ED TAKES JACKIE OUT ON MANY LAVISH DATES HE CAN’T REALLY AFFORD. THEY GO TO FANCY RESTAURANTS, OUT TO MOVIES, THE THEATER, COMEDY CLUBS, THEY GO SEE SHAKESPEARE IN THE PARK, TRIPS TO THEME PARKS, THE ZOO, CAMPING AND HIKING, HE EVEN BUYS HER A BOAT. 

JACKIE EVENTUALLY ENDS THE RELATIONSHIP BECAUSE SHE CAN RECOGNIZE THAT DESPITE ALL HE DOES FOR HER ED IS STILL IN LOVE WITH BELLE – A FACT HE REFUSES TO ADMIT EVEN TO HIMSELF.
