“I’m going to kill you”
“What did I do?” Alice exclaimed with a squeaky tone as she shrugged and held an arm out at her side. She looked at the woman standing in her doorway with a legitimate clueless expression. She had expected Bette to be the one on the other side of her door and not the brunette currently in front of her.
“Lara” Dana looked at Alice with annoyance as she crossed her arms over her chest, “I took your advice and spied on her”
“You did what?” Alice gasped with surprise and looked at her friend through wide eyes as she stood off to the side to give the troubled brunette access to her apartment. “Whoa, I did not tell you to spy on her, Dana!”
Dana whipped around with her hands in their air, pained regret covering her usual carefree expression. “You told me to find out what she’s been up to!”
Alice rolled her eyes as she closed the door behind her, “Yeah by asking her and confronting her about what you saw not going all James Bond on your girlfriend”
“Actually it was more like Johnny English“ Dana mumbled as a wave of embarrassment flashed over her eyes before speaking in a much louder, more audible tone. “And how was I supposed to know that anyway? You should be more literal with your words!”
Alice sputtered as she struggled to come up with a reply, having been taken aback with Dana’s response. “Yeah, well with you I guess I have to”
Dana groaned as she covered her face with her hands and slumped down onto the nearby couch, “Al, what am I going to do? Lara was really pissed. She won’t even return my calls”
Alice gave her friend a sympathetic smile as she walked over and gently sat beside her. Wrapping an arm around Dana’s back, Alice tried her best to soothe the saddened brunette.
The old Alice would have been overcome with joy at the situation given the fact that Dana was finally in her arms but the present version of the blonde found no satisfaction in what was happening. Not only was her friend hurting but Alice found that she wanted to try and mend the fractured relationship between Dana and Lara rather than add to its demise. She no longer had a desire to replace the redhead in her best friend’s life.
