Verity Hender and her spectre of regret

If she does not seek help from the ones who cared for her, then she will never get better and the fact that she destroyed her father’s life, all through a lie, will be as though a spectre will hang over her for all of her life.

One day maybe, she will get a conscience but, by then, it will be far too late and, boy, will she regret it.

Regret is one of the worst things that you can have, just as bad as knowing that you have cancer and that regret will end up dominating her life until her last breath. She may kid herself, do things that will distract her for a while, but that spectre of regret will always be with her.

I, too, have a spectre of regret. That I did not keep to the pact that I had agreed with Liesel, to “help her on her way” in order to preserve her dignity but, for the circumstances that I have talked about before, I chose Verity over her. If I had a crystal ball then, I would have chosen Liesel.

That regret will stay with me until my last breath too
