I've got an army out here baying for blood, I can't hold them back much longer.
If Harry is cheating I'm letting them loose. We'll steal River away and hide her somewhere

Honestly, River is a totally catch. I'm sure anyone would be happy to take her away from Harry. *Cue Steal My Girl* You are the very first reader to suspect that Harry is cheating and it's probably the most interesting theory yet. Hold the ammo though until we have reasonable evidence lol.

I'm so glad you're enjoying this! Thanks for reading and re-reading there's an update coming in the near future!

Welcome, new reader! I'm so happy you could join us!
You've perfectly analyzed Harry and River's relationship dynamic. River can easily come off as whiny and demanding (although she is pregnant) and doesn't always give him credit where his credit is due. You really hit the nail on the head here : "when he doesn't mistreat her.. he just doesn't treat her at all I guess." Lol. I have to laugh because it's so true and part of what makes Harry so complex. He's very stingy with his emotion but still gives off the vibe that he deeply cares about River and his unborn baby. You may very well be on to something when you mention that Harry may not have been taught to express his emotion which could result in the way he act now.

I already like you as a reader because I LOVE your thoughts! Thanks so much for reading and reviewing!!
