Check out an upcoming scene that takes place between these two former flames following an intense encounter in which one or more truths have been revealed:
A smile inched up the corners of his mouth, but in no way was he thrilled with what she had to say. “Don’t play the victim here, V, alright? Nobody’s an innocent in this mess that we’ve all created for ourselves and each other.”
“I’m not playing a victim of anything,” she snapped. “And I wouldn’t dare say that we all created this mess. I’d say that you and Sheila created it like you do everything else and dragged us right along for the ride which leads straight down to hell.”
“That’s bullshit, Vanessa.” He sighed.
“No actually, it’s not bullshit, Nate. In fact, it’s far from it. My life was a hell of a lot easier, and so much simpler without the two of you back in it, mucking it up as usual. I don’t know how many times I have to say this before it finally sinks into your thick as hell skull, but you two haven’t even been back a year yet and look at all of the destruction you continue to leave behind in your wreckage.” She took his hand and wiped it down again with the cloth. Then grabbed a large, white bandage to tape down over the cuts. “You and Sheila are like two tornadoes who go out of their way colliding into everyone else except for each other.”
He looked into her dark brown eyes, those same dark brown eyes that he would do anything for, even now, even in his anger, and swallowed hard.
“Colliding into each other is what got us here, V.”
As he reached up for her face with his other hand, she jerked herself away and shoved his hand back.
“Yeah, it got us miserable like always. Maurice was right, I can’t think of a single time you and I were together when you actually made me happy. God only knows what the hell I was hanging onto for so many years. I think part of me just thought I’d never actually find anyone else to put up with my shit like you could. But who the hell knew you’d give it right back to me ten-fold for years to come? Even apart, you manage to turn my world upside down, inside out and I always seem to come out the worse for it. You are like a human wrecking ball and I’m sick and tired as hell of you always swinging that thing into every wall I’ve built up with my bare hands to keep you out.”
