You handled him well.

No, I didn't. It was terrible, Lance. I don't know how I'll ever face him again.

You don't need to. I'm the only one you'll ever need to see.

Silver dashed every expectation that I had. I thought… I thought that if I showed him affection and emotion and caring, that maybe he'd reform himself. Maybe we could have started something together. Something lasting. I could've sworn I loved him. But… now it's over. It's all over, and I can't help to think that it was my fault, to a degree.

You had no part in his undoing of your love, Gold. He was the one that cheated on you first.

Yeah, first.

We had a mutual split when you fell in love with Silver. Your desire to move on and establish some stability in your relationship was understood by me. We haven't touched in these last few months.

I know, but I still feel dirty. Being with someone before pledging myself to Silver… makes me feel…

There's nothing wrong with having former paramours, Gold. We have all had one or two. Some more than one or two.

I have betrayed him.

It was he who betrayed you.

Lance… I have no idea where he is right now, and I know that we can never repair what has been so profoundly broken. I can only hope that he is safe and that someday, he will find true happiness.

Silver is gone. Perhaps you need to focus on yourself and your own joy.

How? How will I do that? I'm wounded, Lance.

Let me heal you. Let me love you in the ways he never could.

I thought we were done, Lance.

An old spark can always be rekindled.

I don't know if…

Throw away your insecurities. I have been here for you to talk when you needed someone besides Silver and offered you a shoulder to cry on. I still love you, Gold. I'd like a second chance with you.

But… I'm going to miss him so much.

I can help you forget about him. Come here.

Thank you, Lance.

Friends with benefits, my love.

… Wherever he may be, I hope he has food and shelter, at least. Where do you think he went?

I haven't the slightest clue.
