Chapter 38

Bili was out on the showroom floor pulling pieces of glass and ceramic from the drywall and throwing them into a garbage can in robotic fashion. The worry on Bili’s face was palpable. She knew what she had done, and would do it again under the same circumstances, but she would forever feel responsible what she had just done to Theo. The only person in this world Bili loved.

Theo approached her slowly, knowing what she was thinking before she said a word. She didn’t have to. No one knew her like Theo.

Tears filled the wells of her eyes and Bili tried to wipe them away as fast as they fell. It was a losing battle.

“I’m sorry, I...” she tried to say, but Theo cut her off.

“Don’t worry about this mess. I’ll take care of it.” Theo said.

Bili didn’t argue. She used her shirt to remove the trails of tears on her face, nodded quickly, and walked to the back to get her things.
