What does TeriJo think in her bones? Let her respond with her inner self in full flower and if she deems necessary full force. TeriJo is the final arbiter.

I stand silently beside you. Picture me as I was, a 27 year old, relentlessly fierce 6'3", 212 pound Marine. I stand silently beside you. I am an immovable force next to you. You act, I stand with you.
