Today I was reading a little bit from Fifty Shades Darker and was thinking about this scene between Christian and Elena:
It’s no miracle, Christian,” Elena scoffs good-naturedly. “Have a little faith in yourself. You really are quite a catch. I’ve told you often enough. And she seems lovely, too. Strong. Someone to stand up to you.” I can’t hear Christian’s response. So I’m strong, and I? I certainly don’t feel that way.
“Don’t you miss it?” Elena continues.
“That really is none of your fucking business,” Christian snaps.
So, do you think he missed the playroom?
He tells Ana he doesn’t. But he seems more like a kid who put his hand on a hot stove, he bot burned there so he’s afraid of it. But he’s still drawn to the shiny red thing. Although he says he doesn’t want to go back, and does stall in returning to the playroom, but not all that long…
