It was like, very late at night when I wrote this, and I can get kinda poetic sometimes.

Please do not interpret this as 'Annie needs a man to feel like she isn't alone'. It was not intended that way at all. Even if it was, what is wrong with that? Isn't it her choice how she defines herself? How she feels safe?

Sometimes, not feeling alone can come to us by the people we are with. Sometimes it comes from inner strength, the will to go on when things get hard. And there is no 'right' answer. Be loved. Love yourself.

Awww!

I think her rationality isn't so much she needs a man, but (even if transient) Vic has, to date, provided something resembling an anchor a rock of stability in the turbulent waters of her life. However, his impending departure reminds her that while she's largely been buffeted by the proverbial wind and waves, muddling through with no clear direction, she'll need to cast off and forge her own path through life, regardless of which other directions the wind / waves want to take her in.

(Hmm, rather philosophical... make of that what you will!)

@mittfh: That is exactly what I was going for. Stressing how even though her life is so up and down, right in this second, she is where she should be. She will be alone again soon enough, but with everything that has happened, there are moments where things can be still and calm. If she can hold on to that, maybe she can get through the times when the waves kick up again.
