The First Step in Manifesting is Knowing

Days of Our Lives, Romance Novels and Rape

Days of Our Lives, Romance Novels and Rape





Sometimes it's strange how when you ask like a question, you get the answer in the weirdest way. I could never understand why so many were in favor of the pairing of Sami and EJ after the rape.
