question: what does "so what happens?"mean here?
he changed so much once we moved in together,once the novelty of facing each other across the breasfast table every morning wore thin.litle by little he wore down my defences and wore down my own personality.
"you think things will turn out like they did with Tony,don't you?can't you see i would never do that to you?i love you.i respect you.oh,what's the point?you think history will repeat itself and ,without taking that step,i can't prove things would be any different.so where does that leave us,zoe?we have to move or ..."thank goodness he didn't say it.
"but it doesn't have to be like that.nothing has to change,does it?can't we just leave things as they are?" i was almost pleading with him,but i had to make him see that now,after building up my confidence again,i couldn't risk losing it like before.
"so what happens? we just carry on like this until we 're old and grey,living seperately,together yet apart.what about a future,our future?we can live together."
