Stef gives Dru some heartbreaking news.
I hear a knocking at my door. It must be Stef! He looks upset and confused. I don’t like seeing him like this. I grab hold of him and pull him in close.
I fall apart in Dru’s arms I can’t take it, all this pressure of having to choose between two people I love so much. Dru wipes away my tears and holds me; he gives me a little shake “Stef, what’s up? You can tell me anything and everything. You know that!” I begin to talk “Its Ash he told me he loves me and I don’t know what to do” Dru looks at me in surprise, as if I didn’t know this already. “I know he does… he’s made it kind of obvious.” I feel bad now. Has Ash been trying to hint at me for ages? I want to tell Dru that Ash tried to kiss me and how I had wanted to kiss him back but I knew it would tear him apart; it was as if Dru read my mind a tear started rolling down his cheek “I love you Stef don’t you ever forget that. Ok?” I feel like shit. I know I should tell him I love him back but I can’t get the words out. I don’t even know if I feel that way about him anymore. We sit in silence for a few more seconds until Dru starts speaking again “Stef I know all this is hard for you right now but I want you to know that I’ll always be here for you and I’ll always love you no matter what you decide to do” Dru starts crying. I can’t take it. I don’t like seeing him like this. I kiss him. “Dru, thank you. For everything. I don’t want it to end like this but all this is killing me. You have to understand that…” I can’t finish what I’m saying I’m crying so much I can’t speak anymore. “Stef please don’t do this to me. PLEASE!” “I’m sorry Dru I just can’t do this anymore” I get up and go to the door, I’m half way through the door when I hear a whisper coming from Dru “please don’t leave me, I love you” “Sorry.”
