The eyes have it …..as the saying goes. Urgh, he has that predatory stare! I feel so sorry for Robyn…..horrible. And her poor parents waiting for her to come home. I may feel devastated at times by my exp with the ex. I’m still here and that’s something. A right that she was denied. Poor darling. It makes me want to weep.
