"I just don't get it." Jason now looked at Tony straight in the face, before continuing... "Your parents are divorcing?"
One look on his friends face said it all.
"Jeez... don't parents understand what they do to their kids? I mean they are supposed to be the adults. Why do we always have to be the ones to be flexible."
Trina finally was able to look up at her friend. He had already been there and done that but the scars still seemed to come thru every now and then.
:"Jason... do you really think there is such a thing as true love??"
A heavy sigh came in response. Trina gave a short little smile to that. Jason was always a deep thinker and never gave an answer quickly unless surprised... like earlier.
"I think it is more of a true like. I saw it in an old western once. This guy asked this man for his daughter's hand in marriage..."
"No .. wait.. hear me out.... He declared that he loved the daughter and wanted to marry her. The man asked, But do you like her? Love is based on feelings, like is based on respect. So I think that is better than all of this true love stuff. I mean if you like someone... you accept them and respect them... you don't leave them.... and it is not about what you can get from them." Turning slightly red from revealing so much to Trina, he flashed a smile.
"humnnnn." was her response, what to do about this? Her heart now was beating a little faster.
"Trina... I will be there for you. I want to be there for you because ... " he took a deeper breath, for courage.... "I really like you."
Trina simply nodded. Then realization at what the man said hit her like a ton of bricks.
"You... you like me?"
"Sure. And that is more important than all this true love bull shit." He laughed and said, "Now give me that remote, there is a football game I wanted to watch."
