I can wait in silence no longer, but I’m afraid I’m already too late. I am trapped between agony and hope — believing I have no right to speak, but knowing more how much I’d regret it if I did not. Tell me I’m not wrong. Tell me that, this time, you will accept my offer. Because I’m making it again. I want you with me, Elliot. It’s all I have ever wanted. I offer you everything I have — my world, my ship, my self — perhaps they will be enough to replace what I know you would be giving up if you came with me.
