A lot of Kim's dialogue is from Adele's song, "Someone Like You"


"What are you doing here, Kim?"

His cold eyes caught her off-guard. Was he not as happy to see her as she was to see him?

But, wait, was she happy to see him? She knew that she...

"I...just had to come see you, Tommy. I'm sorry."

He didn't reply to her. He just shut the door to his house and gestured for her to sit down on a chair on the porch. Tommy pulled out a chair and moved it across from her. She took note of this and awkwardly sat down, wringing her hands together.

"Um..."

"I'm happy, Kim. I am."

Kim nodded. "I know...I just...I don't know. Something came over me, I guess."

Tommy nodded. "Okay."

"Well...um..." she recalled her earlier conversation with Jason. "I heard that you're settled down."

She recalled a vague memory from a few months ago. Jason was telling her that Tommy was getting married. And that he was going to be his best man. She didn't receive an invitation, but it was nothing less than she'd expected. She understood, at the time.

Jason wasn't asking for permission, he was just telling her. She understood. She didn't want to put Jason in between them.

So, why was she here, again?

Tommy nodded. "Yes, I have."

Kim nodded in return. "That you found a girl. That you're married now."

"Yes. Thus the happiness."

Kim bit her lip. Tommy was not making this easy on her. But could she have expected something else? Something different?

"I heard...that your dreams came true." He nodded. "Guess she gave you things I didn't give to you," she added softly.

"Yeah. She loves me," he replied.

Kim looked down, a little hurt at the unspoken accusation. The two of them fell silent with an awkward sort of silence lying between the two of them. "You seem...I don't know...we're old friends. Why are you so shy? Ain't like you to hold back...or hide from the light."

Tommy glared at Kim. He opened his mouth to speak.

"She's there for me through everything. She doesn't run at the first sign of trouble. She doesn't shut down on me when things get tough. She talks to me. She doesn't hide."

Kim nodded sadly. "I understand."

Tommy narrowed his eyes at her. She glanced at him, in expectation. A little flutter of hope flew in her chest. "What do you want, Kim?"

She fell silent for a bit. "I'm sorry, Tommy. I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited."

"So why are you here?"

"I dunno...I...guess...I guess I couldn't stay away...I dunno, I couldn't fight it." She looked down and looked up quickly. Her heart was pounding. "I guess...I had hoped you'd see my face and that you'd be reminded."

"About what?"

"That for me...it isn't over..."


Sorry, I know that was very short! Please review and let me know what you think!
