Thomas Was Always Inspired By Her
Iris, on the other hand, never voiced her discontent with this. At all times, she was a continual source of encouragement and motivation for Thomas. She made him feel loved and safe with all of her warmth. For Thomas, this was an opportunity to repay her.
His inability to spend much time with her made him wonder whether the gifts he was giving her would help him restore some sense of normalcy and equilibrium. Money acquired from work would allow him to purchase her appealing presents. To express his love for her, he would soon lose the capacity to express it via words and instead rely on money.
