C: Closure

Natalie turned around and saw Marty staring at her. Natalie could see that Marty had been crying. "How long have you been there?" Natalie asked.

"Long enough to hear everything that you said to my little girl. How long have you been coming here?" Marty asked.

"Since she died. I've been trying to bring her flowers once a week since you went away to ST. Anne's. I knew that you couldn't do it while you were in the hospital."

"Thank you. I was worried that she would be forgotten while I was recovering, so thank you for looking after my little girl for me."

"You're welcome, I should be going." Natalie said as she begun to walk away.

"Wait Natalie, there's something that I need to tell you. I don't blame you for her death, not anymore. I blame myself. In truth it was just easier in the beginning to blame you."

"I am to blame Marty. If you hadn't walked in on John and I having sex then you wouldn't have been running down the stairs. It was the shock and the stress of seeing me and John together that caused you to fall down the stairs and go into early labor."

"That's true, but I was supposed to be on bed rest. My pregnancy was high risk and I knew it. When John called me and told me that he had to work through the night I could sense that he was lying. I was insecure so I went to your house and I broke in and saw what my heart had already known was true - John didn't love me. He never did. I shouldn't have gone to your place that night. Maybe if I hadn't she would still be alive."

"I'm really sorry that she died but you're not to blame."

"I'm sorry that I switched Liam's paternity but you need to know why I did what I did. I resented you and Liam for taking Megan's and my place in John's heart. I want you to know that I'm trying my hardest to find closure and to get over the resentment that I feel towards you."

"I know. We've all made mistakes. I understand why you did what you did and I'm trying to forgive you. I got to get going. Bye Marty."

"Bye Natalie," Marty said as she watched Natalie walk away.
