life. You surgically removed me so well because you are a doctor.
You took a leaf out of your favorite book and drove a stake

the idea was she's wishing for them to get back together, but it didn't happen. But yeah, it's not that clear, i just wanted to have an interesting title that would make people want to read it :)
