She had started crying and he was concerned, “Why are you crying?”

“Because…”

“What’s wrong?”

“Because it happened to me before.”

“Did it? Really… honestly?”

“I was raped before in college…”

“Were you really?! Get out of here.” Ted pauses. “Yeah, I think… I apologize…”

“… and I had people tell me that I bring it on myself and stuff. And for a minute this morning I thought you were going to try and pretend it didn’t happen.”

“Oh no, I was planning to talk to you later on, but I didn’t have an opportunity to talk to you about it…”

“I’m really glad you apologized. That makes me feel a lot better.”

“No, seriously, I apologize, a million times. Can you forgive me?

Yes.”

“Thank you.”

“You’re a good person, Ted.” Ghandia hugs and kisses Ted on the cheek.
“And don’t worry, you don’t have to worry about that ever happening again.”

“Ok.”

“You got it?”

“Alright.”
