Nico Jr: Okay. Fine. I’ll see you later on tonight.
Maxine: So you’re going to apologize?
Nico Jr snaps: No. What do I look like? But we’re not going to stop being friends or hanging out. I like spending time with you, Max. And I plan on doing so for the time I’m here. So let’s stop with this little show of power, because we both know I’m going to be in your room tonight, on top of you, kissing you until you can’t breathe.
Maxine gets up, frustrated. He was right. She didn’t think she had the will power to really stop being with him.
Maxine softly: I had to let you know how I felt. It hurt my feelings, seeing how cruel you can be. Throwing it in my Mom’s face that she works for you. I’m gonna go now. I don’t want to talk anymore. And I have a phone call to make.
She’s about to leave the room when she hears him sigh.
Nico Jr: Stop, Max. Stay here with me.
Maxine: I can’t right now. I’ll see you later.
Nico Jr softly: I’ll apologize.
Nico Jr: Did I stutter? I said I’ll apologize. To Teresa. But not for her. For you.
