Don’t ever take a fence down until you know the reason it was put up. -G. K. Chesterton
Mary knew why it was in place even if no one else did. Her ‘brother’ certainly didn’t know why it was there. He didn’t bother to ask when he put his plans into action to get her to remove it.
She’d like to think that he wouldn’t have done so if he’d known what consequences its destruction would bring.
“Neil, you won’t like what happens should you see this through.”
He’d sneered at her and ignored her wishes, as usual.
He wouldn’t be able to ignore the outcome, no matter how hardheaded he could be.
