Love and Fear

From the movie The Village:

Ivy Walker: When we are married, will you dance with me? I find dancing very agreeable. Why can you not say what is in your head?

Lucius Hunt: Why can you not stop saying what is in yours? Why must you lead, when I want to lead? If I want to dance I will ask you to dance. If I want to speak I will open my mouth and speak. Everyone is forever plaguing me to speak further. Why? What good is it to tell you, that you are in my every thought from the time I wake? What good can come from my saying that I sometimes cannot think clearly or do my work properly?

What gain can rise of my telling you the only time I feel fear as others do is when I think of you in harm? That is why I am on this porch, Ivy Walker. I fear for your safety before all others. And yes, I will dance with you on our wedding night.

 

Yes I am an odd twisted person. This is one of my favorite scenes from one of my favorite movies. I know it is a suspense/thriller movie but Ivy and Lucius are one of my favorite love stories. I hope you all have a great Valentine’s Day!
