In this scene, the main character, Mia, has broken it off once and for all with her boyfriend, Connor.
"Answer me this, Mia --did you ever love me?"
"Of course I did." All the good times we'd had together raced through my brain—Connor holding my hand as we watched fireworks, Connor sitting behind me on a toboggan, his arms around my waist as we careened down the hill behind the Inn, Connor undressing me for the first time, his eyes heavy with want. I had loved him, hadn't I?
"I don't believe you ever did." He stood up and walked out the door without looking back.
No, I wanted to shout, I did love you. It's just that I loved skiing more.
