If you need to make decisions without my input, go ahead. I’m here to support you, not undermine you. If I don’t agree with your decisions, I will speak up. Like I’m doing right now.”
The charming smile suddenly disappeared. “It’s like I can’t do anything right anymore.”
Alyssa softened. “Will.”
He shook his head and walked away.
She didn’t stop him.
