RJ: I hate that you think so poorly of me. But I never lied to you. You knew I was sleeping with Margaux when we hooked up, just like I knew you were sleeping with Nicky. I don’t lie to my partners. Now I realize it’s probably not the best thing to do-to be intimate with two people at once even if you’re upfront about it. Because Margaux knows all about you. Knows exactly how I feel about you.
Diosa sneers: Does she really? How nice.
RJ: She does. She also knows that I was thisclose to ending things with her to be with you. But you told me you didn’t want me.
Diosa snaps: And now she’s conveniently pregnant.
RJ: Diosa, things like this happen. You should know that better than anyone. But honestly? The way I feel about you? I’d still end it with her, pregnant or not. I’d be a father to my child, but I’d end it with her. *fierce* I love you that much, Diosa. All you have to do is tell me that you’ll have me, that you’ll marry me when you come of age. That you’ll build a life with me. That you’ll let me take care of you. Diosa, tell me that, and I’ll end it with Margaux.
Diosa whispers: You want my answer to that?
RJ nods: Yes. Tell me how you feel.
She slaps him hard across the face.
Diosa: THAT’s how I feel. I despise you, RJ. You know I love Nicky and I always will. I only wanted to call you out for the big two face that you are. I wanted to say it to your face.
He nods, holds a hand to his cheek. She turns away, her breathing ragged.
Why? Why was she so afraid of telling him she loved him?
