“You’ve given me chances when I never even deserved them, T.”
“You deserved them, you did. It went both ways, Bette.”
I nod. “Well, I was just checking in on you. I knew you had to come to work today and she’d be here.”
“I did have to tell her to give me time.”
“I hope you make your decision from your heart and not just your mind. And if she betrays your trust again, you won’t be the only mad one. I’m really sorry I lied to you, I thought I was doing the right thing. I should have known you’d trust me to give you an honest answer.”
“Has time improved your kind-caring speeches?” She chuckles with a smile.
“Maybe it has.” I chuckle back. “If I don’t see you tonight, I’ll be seeing you on Saturday to pick the kids up.”
She nods. “For sure.”
I turn and make my way out of her office. As I walk away I hear my name being called. I turn to see Danielle approaching me.
“Hey.” I respond.
“Whatcha doing here?”
“I was checking in on Tina.”
“Has she said anything about me?”
“You’ll find out whenever she decides to talk to you.”
“You still aren’t upset about our little argument are you?”
“We had an argument and it’s over. I’m not going to bring it back to light, I’m going to believe half of your harsh words were mostly because of liquor. I tried to convince Tina to give you a second chance, so I’m not here trying to get her to forget you. I’m doing the complete opposite.”
“Because I know that I use to make her happy and I see the way you make her smile. Makes me believe that you really do make her happy. It hurts me to think that you could possibly make her more happy but that is all I want for her. I want to see her happy again.”
“Never knew you felt that way.”
“Not all exes try to get revenge on the next person that comes into their past relationship. Some actually want happiness for the one they use to love.”
Danielle stands there and nods her head.
“So, please don’t betray her again and try to start something with me.” I pause. “I hate to see her upset.”
