Rebecca couldn't believe it- she had just cheated on Robin with Sam. How could this have happened? How could she have been so stupid, so careless, so thoughtless? For all of her life she dreamed of a rich, sophisticated man falling in love with her, and now she had that, so why would she risk it all…for Sam? This couldn't be happening. This was another of her bad dreams, one in which she desperately prayed she would wake up.
"Yes, sweetheart, I think we just did. Are you feeling okay?"
"No. No. Sam, how can you be so calm about what just happened? Robin walked in on us and now I'm about to lose everything that has ever meant anything to me. And it's all because of you!" Rebecca cried as she straightened out her jacket.
"Me? As I seem to recall there were two of us in agreement to do what we did. So don't go putting all the blame on me. You wanted this just as much as I did," Sam protested.
"But how? You know you how I feel about you! How could you take such low down cheap advantage of me?"
"Wait a minute, wait a minute… I never took advantage of you. If my memory serves right you were the one coming on to me! You took advantage of me."
"What?" Rebecca stared at him.
"You heard me sister. You took advantage of my being here for you, and when things took a turn you didn't like, you decide to point all the blame on me. How could you?"
She still couldn't believe what she was hearing. "Oh no you don't buster. Everyone knows how you feel about me. You've been chasing me since the moment you laid eyes on me, and at the first moment I feel a little lonely, you take advantage of me. You've caused me to lose the one man in the world whom I actually…"
Rebecca's face and voice softened. "Love, Sam. I love him. And now he's gone. I just don't know what I'm going to do anymore."
"Well you should have thought about that before laying a big smooch on me."
"I know. I know it. I'm blaming you but the truth is I have only one person to blame-myself. I hate my stupid life and I hate my stupid job and I hate my stupid friends…"
"Come on now Rebecca. You found out what Robin is about, and you don't like it. Don't go around blaming your friends for something that you should have known about from the beginning. Don't you see? Robin is a user. He was just using you to gain control of the company. He doesn't love you. Don't you see, your friends are the ones who love you and will help you get through this?"
"Oh god. What if I've been wrong about Robin? I've been wrong about everything else in my life, so why not this? How could I have been so stupid?"
"You weren't stupid. You were just in love. Love makes you stupid- believe me, I know this from personal experience."
"Tell me something, Sam. If you would have known how things would have turned out with Diane, would you have still done them?"
He paused for a minute before breaking into a smile. "Absolutely."
"That's what I was afraid of." And with that, Rebecca sighed and sank down unto the couch, uncertain of what her future held.
