In those 395 days, Benny Watts had tried, at first unconsciously, to find a definition to the girl with whom he spent the nights - to summarize, in a way, all the aspects and emotions that he was feeling while looking at her. In the past three years, since Beth’s victory in Moscow, he had remained for a long time at the mercè of those feelings - unable to accept the real nature of his interest in the girl. But that was the past: now he wanted to understand, he wanted to give a name to those sensations.
Beth Harmon didn't speak the language of human people, she had her own world - her own space; that she liked to share, at the right time, with people that she knew - that she decided - were deserving of her attention or consideration. She wasn't open, she didn't want to appear reachable or available to everyone: but at the same time, deep down, she wanted to be understood; she wanted people to waste time on her - show that they cared to know her.
