“That was not my fault, I was going to tell her. I just wanted to know where we stood. Like I want to know now.”
“I don’t know where we stand but I cannot stand here on this vacation and make eye contact with that woman, Bette.”
“It isn’t your right to tell her.” I hear her voice begin to uprise with frustration.
“Isn’t it? I’m the one who slept with the woman she is dating?? How isn’t this my right?”
“So you want to ruin this whole vacation?” She asks me.
I’m brought to silence realizing how this would ruin the vacation.
“We don’t need to bring our drama to this vacation and ruin it for everyone else.” She says again. “I wanted to bring you here to tell you that I want to know how to work this out. I want to know what the next step for us is?”
“I cannot answer that because I truly don’t know.”
“This keeps happening to us. Every single time we separate, something brings us right back into this position.”
“Maybe we are just dumb.” I say.
“This isn’t us being dumb. This should wake us up. Instead of ending things when we argue or we are unhappy we should fight through it, Tina. Take a little break instead of tearing everything apart.”
Her words dig deep into my heart.
“Maybe we need to fight harder to be apart.” I say.
“You know that wouldn’t work.”
“Because no matter who you put between us or how far apart you separate us. I know one hundred percent we will end up right here.”
“I don’t know where this bring us, Bette. I don’t know what I want.”
“I can’t carry myself around you without wanting to just hold your hand or be next to you, T.”
A tear then begins to fall from my eye. I feel her body move close to mine and wipe that tear away with her thumb but keeping her hand resting on my face.
“Please tell me you feel no regret with what happened..” She asks me in a nervous tone.
I break from her gentle grasp and turn away from her.
I wipe my eyes and refuse to answer.
