The same night, Tina looks at Eric curiously when he takes a turn in the opposite direction of his place.
Tina: Where are you going?
Eric shakes his head as he visibly squeezes the steering wheel tightly.
Eric: To see my dumb ass brother…
Tina glances at the clock.
Tina: At one in the morning?
Tina rolls her eyes.
Tina: Couldn’t you have dropped me off before whatever this is?
Eric: No time, babe come on just be a sport would ya? It won’t take long.
Tina once again sighs and slouches down in her seat….
About twenty minutes later, Eric comes to a screeching halt int front of his brother’s house.
Tina: Eric, what the hell? Are you gonna tell me what’s going on here?
Eric: My brother’s a fucking screw up that’s what.
Tina watches Eric climb out of the car and then follows suit.
Tina: What are you talking about? He is not, Harry’s one of the most responsible people I know.
Eric looks at Tina as he bangs on the front door.
Eric: Let’s see if you still think that once you find out what he’s been up to…
A few seconds later, they hear a muffled voice asking who it is.
Eric: Just open the damn door, Harry…
Seconds later, the door opens and Tina smiles at her suave soon to be brother-in-law.
Harry: Eric what are you doing here? What’s going on?
Eric pushes the door open and slides past his brother.
Eric: You tell me…
Harry: Come on in I guess, bro….
Tina gives Harry another sympathetic smile as she steps inside.
Tina pecks Harry’s cheek.
Tina: Hey you… sorry about this…
Harry closes the door and looks at Eric.
Harry: It’s okay I know how it is when my baby brother has a bug up his ass about something. This couldn’t wait until sunrise?
Eric puts his hands on his hips.
Eric: Apparently not, the reporter that’s been blowing up my phone all night sure as shit didn’t think so.
Harry: What reporter? What the hell are you talking about, Eric?
Eric sighs and shakes his head.
Eric: I thought you were being careful Harry…
Tina looks back and forth at the brothers, still utterly confused about what’s happening.
