[Protein-analysis] Enthalpy of protein

I have a very simple question.
Suppose in a protein folding pathway we have two opposite charged
residues seperated by "d" angstrom such that there is a weak
interaction between them. We name it state A, so its enthalpy is Ha.
As protein conformation changes through folding pathway we suppose "d"
decreases, so interaction between charges become stronger. Now we name
it State B and its enthalpy as Hb.

My simple question is: is Ha>Hb? or Hb>Ha?
