I hate you. You're so weak and vulnerable. The kind of girl who's so quiet that her father and mother forget about her in the chaos of Lizzie. The kind of girl Penelope won't fight for anymore. The kind of girl Landon breaks up with in one speech. The kind of girl who's destined to lose the Merge. You needed me. Because without me, you would have never survived. This is what being strong looks like. [...] It'll never be over. As long as you have black magic in you. I will always find a way back.
Dark Josie talks about her good self.
