Now, Joe and Trisha were left alone on the pier. She had gotten up and went to sit on the end of the pier and Joe was a couple of feet behind her. She heard him follow her, “Leave me alone!” She screamed.“Please let me explain,” was all Joe could get out before Trisha let loose on him.
“What do you mean 'explain'? What the hell happened back there? All I know is what happened back there was uncalled for! What did I do to deserve that?” Trisha yelled. She stared a hole right throughhim for a few minutes then went back to staring into the lake.After a few minutes, Joe had decided he needed to try again. “Please just let me tell you whathappened, why I did what I did.”Trisha ignored him, still staring at the lake, crying.Joe decided to keep going, “Back before the guys and I hit it big, I was going out with a girl from myschool. For a while, it was great, but then, we got signed and released our first album. That's when itfirst started, She started changing. Then, when we started getting famous, and she became a totallydifferent person. She was one of the nicest people you would ever meet, but once she found out that her boyfriend was going to be a celebrity, she totally lost it. She became overly obsessive of me. We hadwent on a date and I looked at another girl, she yelled at the girl and just degraded her right in front of me and everyone else at the restaurant. She became a total ice queen. After she did that, I couldn't look at her, much less, talk to her.” His voice was filled with sadness as he poured out his heart.“Kevin had to get my numbers changed. Demi told her off. Everyone did what they could to get her away from me, because I was so heartbroken, I was barely functioning. After a few days, I just bottledit all up and tried to forget, and just acted like it never happened, but when I went to get into character,all of those emotions just came rushing back and I couldn't do anything. It was the one thing I neededto do but I did it at the wrong place at the wrong time and to the wrong girl.” Tears poured Joe's eyes.That experience was very traumatizing for him and for him to finally tell someone else, he felt a little better, but he still felt awful about what had happened.“I know it is not a good explanation, but it is the truth. I would never intentionally mean to hurt you,Trish. You're like the big sister I've never had. Please,” he grabbed Trisha's hand to get her to look athim. She turned to see him looking broken. He had hurt, not only his 'sister' but his brother's girlfriend,and she could tell that he was being genuine,”Forgive me.”After a few minutes, Trisha finally said something, “Before I answer, I have something to tell you.”She was talking to him, but he didn't know how long it would last. So, he tried to keep it simple,“Okay.”Trisha began to tell him what happened with her first boyfriend. As Trisha went on, Joe had sat down beside her on the end of the dock, part of him furious at the man who had hurt her and naturally hewanted to protect her, but his heart ached with every new sentence that came out of her mouth about allthe bad things her ex had done to her and what his actions had drug up. When she finally finished, shelooked at Joe. He looked worse than before.Seeing the hurt in his face, she finally said, “Hey, you didn't know.” Her anger had subsided. “I guessour pasts decided to show their ugly heads at the same time.” Joe's face didn't change. “Hey,” She madehim look at her, “I'm not mad at you any more. I don't blame you for what happened. The scene just fit
