“Stop here please”
Robin prompts the driver who pulls off to the side and parks. She watches as Iris steps out of the cab she was in and begins walking toward a sparsely lit park with a Greco style fountain..Angels surrounding the top, middle, and base. The lights from the fountain sparkling from the constant flow.
“Thanks” Robin pays the driver and steps out walking toward Iris who has seated herself on one of the benches that surround the fountain.
“Would you care for some company?”
Iris jumps and quickly turns to see Robin standing behind her
“Oh my God Robin!..You scared the shit out of me..What are you doing here?” Iris asks startled. Her hand clutching her chest
“I’m sorry..But the question is….What are you doing here?…And all by yourself no less”
“Tina and I had huge blowup. Well…technically I blew up at her and left. I came here to think”
Robin moves around the bench and sits down next to her
“You want to talk about it?” Robin asks hating to see Iris looking so down
“I don’t know where to start. Bette has always been this huge wedge between us. I mean I knew that when I got involved with her. And now it’s like what little progress was being made has totally gone out the window. I can’t reach her Robin and I don’t want to abandon her like Bette did. I love her but I’m losing myself. And now with Bette popping back in her life like some brewing storm I’m afraid that this is it for us”
Robin sighs and puts her arm around Iris pulling her into her side. Iris begins to cry
“Iris..I’m certainly not one to pry in your relationship with Tina or give relationship advice but you shouldn’t stay with Tina out of some obligation as it isn’t fair to her or yourself “ Robin explains feeling like deja vu with this conversation
“I know that…She mourned Bette..Correction…Still mourning Bette and I was there to just listen but I fell for her in the process. And in spite of her grief she fell for me…I do love her and she has my heart but I will never fully have hers” Iris sighs and rests her head in her hands
