I know you. You’re doing something gallant here, making a sacrifice for my honor, but I don’t want you to. I don’t care. Don’t you understand? I don’t care what people say. I’d live in sin with you. Look, if she’s threatening to ruin me, then let her. It’s nothing to me. The only ruin that I recognize is to be without you.
