The devotion and adoration Elliot has for Macey is honestly so beautiful that it evokes jealousy and frustration inside me bc i realize now that there is zero to no chance for me to ever come across a man like Elliot Petropoulos on this earth. And that’s some sad shit, man
❥ Macey’s a sweetheart through and through. The deep loss she endured as a child breaks my heart and i’m so glad that Elliot is her Godsend. Not to forget the pain she went through after leaving Elliot 🥺 i’ll forever stan a chick like her with all that i have.

me @ Macey:
❥ The Petropoulos family is my dream family. They're so wholesome that my long abandoned heart aches. Don't come for them too bc I’m always ready to protecc and attacc for them
"I wasn’t thinking clearly—after—I wasn’t able to separate—you. And it."
' "I was so drunk, Mace. I remember touching your hair, talking to you, encouraging. And when I look back, I still see your face when she climbed on me."
....I remembered what Brandon started to say, something about how Elliot wouldn’t. '
A wonderful friend of mine here on GR, Julia have pointed out something really important on this 'cheating' matter and i feel like it's important for others to understand this and see the logic from this perspective because Elliot did not cheat. Instead, he was taken advantage of by Emma when he was vulnerable and not sober. Can you imagine if roles were reversed and it was Macey who was in his position? Do you think it'd be fair to say that she cheated on Elliot? Would you say she 'cheated' if she were so drunk and got approached by a guy who manipulated her into thinking that he's her boyfriend, then proceeded to take full advantage of her?
Think about it. Just bc Eliot's a dude doesn't mean he's any less of a victim in this situation.
“Favourite word?” He whispers.
I don’t even hesitate. “You.”
He’s my person. He’s always been my person. My best friend, my confidant, probably the love of my life.
I never got to fall out of love. I just had to move on.
“You’re my best everything.”
he just falls to his knees in front of me, wrapping his arms around my hips and pressing his face to my stomach. frozen for a moment, i stare down at the top of his head, trying to translate the shaking of his shoulders. he’s crying.
”then come over here,” he said in that
same quiet voice. “you kiss me.”
my eyes flew to his. “what?”
