>>90765213>She could have chosen to examine her emotions earlier.
She knew what her feelings told her, and she chose to try her best to forget them for the sake of her friendship.>She could have chosen to be honest out of respect towards her best friend, and tell him she was getting kinda interested in him once she realized it was the case.
Why would she risk ruining her relationship with her best friend in the universe, when she knows he doesn't feel the same way?>She could have chosen not to arrange a date for Jackie and Marco.
What the hell kind of friend would she be to put her own selfish happiness over her best friend's chance at love?>She could have chosen to be honest about her emotions instead of actively pretending they don't exist and instead acting like complete opposite, i.e. that she really, really wants Jackie and Marco to get together.
She wants Jackie and Marco to be together, because that would make Marco happy.
She doesn't want to love Marco, because that puts her in a position where she's going to get hurt no matter what she does.>She could have chosen not to fucking lie to her best friend's face actively and repeatedly about how she feels about them.
Being "honest" is not an inherently good thing and does not give anyone a moral high ground or lead them to a path of righteousness.
Sometimes the truth is dangerous.
