"A bond between two living beings is not something easily broken…it is like breaking a feeling. Like turning away from the Force. To break a bond, your feelings would have to change, or one of you would have to die- but even then, the bond wouldn’t go away, it would simply…it would simply be empty, a wound." [x]
