This is why you're ready to tangle like you've never tangled before. What may prove surprising, however, is discovering that he is actually right. You thought he had it in for you in some way, but you will soon see that there was a reason why he was thwarting you: It was to protect you from making a mistake that you couldn't see for yourself.
