“yes…me” (pleading eyes) it’s showtime.


 “well I…” (eyes down, blush) slow down, more emotion


 “I was helpless…I didn’t really know you for you until i went astray”

 do you really expect me to believe that?

 (nodding-nods) no.

 I thought…

 (meet eyes, peer within) check mate.

 No not again…I won’t be fooled

 “yes…i swear” (anguish, pitiful pleading anguish)
how dare he question?

 fine. what happened…happened

 (look down, stay still) quick wipe that smirk off

 so what now?

 “I….I need more time” (sigh) again, more defeated and sad (sigh)

 why do you need more time?

“hmmm….because.” (shut eyes. turn head. dismissed)

lies take time you know…

    I reread it and the phrase, “I was helpless…” struck me. On the one hand I feel compelled to boo and hiss when I hear it– on the other hand I wonder if I have ever felt this way…

      =) Thank you for re-reading…perhaps she’s a better actress than i thought! =))
      Gone are the days where I feel obligated to re-read…
      now I read only if I find it compelling, as I do your work. Look forward to more =)
