"Annie, wait!" I run down the street after her, catching up with her as she reaches the corner.
"Leave me alone Rosa!"
"Please!" She stops and looks at me.
"You would have done that for me?"
"The open relationship? Yes, I would have. Would being the opperative word."
"Annie, please...I'm sorry, but you knew what I was like."
"Yes, but I thought I'd changed you." A tear slid down her cheek. I tried to wipe it away, but she pushed my hand away. "Don't."
"I thought you liked me the way I was."
"Well yes, but I would have preffered to have you to myself."
"I do love you Annie. I just need to be with other people. I need that. Can you understand me?"
"Of course...not that it matters now."
"Annie please.One more chance, an open relationship. Please. I want to see you and Liliana again." Her eyes were brimming with tears now, and, as I watched, a single tear escaped the well and ran down her cheek, followed by another and then another, until she was crying openly.
