As Mimi walked into the Life Café at 12, she spotted her friends at a long table that was made up of smaller tables pushed together.
"Mimi!" Maureen sprang up and ran to her, embracing her in a huge hug. Mimi laughed and hugged back.
"Hey Maureen," Mimi greeted back as they pulled apart.
"Hey Meems, take a seat," Collins greeted her, patting the seat next to him. She greeted him back as she sat down next to him.
"Where's Trevor?" Joanne asked her as she sat down.
"He's busy," Mimi replied casually; Joanne just nodded.
"So then I started screaming at him. I couldn't believe it!" Maureen went on with one of her crazy stories. This time it was something about her stage manager at the time. In the middle of this, Collins noticed something.
"Well look who finally decided to show up," He said, interrupting Maureen. Everyone looked to see who he was talking to. Mark and Roger were walking in and sitting down at the table. Mimi sunk into her seat.
"Sorry, someone decided to take an hour to get ready," Mark explained to them, eyeing Roger. Roger put his hands up in defense.
"I told you that you could leave without me,"
"Yes but then you would have complained that I left without you,"
"Alright! Enough ladies," Collins yelled at the two who were bickering. Maureen giggled as Joanne shook her head, taking a sip of her drink. Mimi just sat there.
"So Roger, where's Courtney?" Maureen asked, noticing her absence.
"Well if you must know, Maureen, it's over between us." Roger told her as a waiter placed an orange juice in front of him. Maureen spit her drink out and all eyes were on Roger now.
"Are you serious?" Maureen exclaimed, her voice sounding almost joyful.
"Look, I don't want to talk about it right now," He told her, taking a sip of his orange juice. Maureen made a sound before sinking down into her seat.
"So Mimi, how are you?" Mark asked Mimi, who was looking down at her plate and playing with her food, she quickly looked up.
"Huh? Oh, I'm good. How about you?" She replied back to him.
"Same, how's Trevor?" He continued to ask, eyeing Roger as he did. Roger noticed and just rolled his eyes at his friend.
"He's fine, was busy with work today." She then explained to him. He nodded, but just as she said these words, she heard another voice come in behind her.
"Sorry I'm late, had a meeting for my new book," Trevor said as he rushed in, kissing Mimi a kiss on the cheek as he sat down. She didn't react to it, she was too in shock at the fact that he actually came. She glanced over to Roger who had a hard look on his face then back to Trevor.
"You came," She whispered to him.
"Of course I did, for you." Mimi flashed him a smile, leaning in and kissing him. On the inside though, she could already feel the guilt eating her from the inside out.
On the other side of the table, Roger was staring at the couple as they kissed and smiled and talked.
"You alright?" His intense stare was interrupted by Mark, who had noticed it.
"Yeah, I'm fine," He replied as he took a sip of his drink. Mark just shrugged his strange behavior off.
"Well, I have to go to another meeting." Trevor said an hour later as he got up, putting his coat on.
"Yeah, so do I actually," Joanne added in, getting up as well.
"I have papers to grade," Collins got up with them.
"I guess we're all going." Mark said as he got up.
"Bye everyone," Trevor told ever before bending down and kissing Mimi. "I'll see you tonight," He said to her in a low voice.
"Okay," She replied with a smile. He then gave everyone a last wave before leaving. Once he left, everyone waited for each other and walked out together.
"Bye!" Everyone shouted to each other as the parted ways, but Roger lingered behind for a moment.
"Mimi, wait!" He then shouted after her once everyone else was out of hearing distance, running towards her. Mimi stopped in her tracks, closing her eyes and taking a deep breath as she heard his footsteps come closer. She quickly turned around once she felt his hand on her shoulder.
"What is it?" She asked; her arms folded across her chest.
"What the hell was that back there?" He asked as he tried to catch his breath.
"What the hell was what?" She questioned back.
"That, all that with him,"
"That? Me kissing my boyfriend? That, that?" She replied in an irritated tone.
"Yes, that that. What about-"
"What about what? Last night? Look that was a mistake on my part and I'm sorry. Let's just go back to the way we were, ignoring each other and never talk about it again, alright?" Roger looked at her with a confused look on his face.
"What are you saying? You just want to pretend nothing happened?" He questioned her.
"Yes, exactly, it was a mistake."
"Mistake? Mimi, you'll never be a mistake to me." Mimi shook her head.
"No Roger, I can't do this. I have to go," Before he could say anything else, she turned around and walked away.
