Finding himself outside of a door that he never thought he would ever be standing before again, Jed was very foreboding about his approach. Nervously knocking on the door, Jed stood there for a good minute or two until it began to open.
Abbey began to slam the door shut on his face, but he managed to stick a foot in the way before it was completely closed. "Ouch, damnit!" He proclaimed as the heavy door crashed with his foot. "Abbey..."
"Don't you dare Abbey me. And if you don't move your fuckin' foot right now, I will give you something to scream about." Abbey shouted at him. How dare he have the audacity to show up here. How dare he stop her from closing the door. How dare he yell at her.
How dare he cheat on her...
How dare he...
"I won't go until we talk." Jed said, doing his best to fake a calm voice.
"I have nothing to say to you, you fuckin' asshole. Get the hell away from me." Abbey swung the door open to get more leverage to slam it shut on his foot, but he managed to push his way through.
"JED! If you don't leave now, I will make you regret it."
"I said I'm not leaving until we talk, damnit." Jed advanced on Abbey. "And I meant it."
"Fine, you want to talk? You want to FUCKIN' talk? What would you like to talk about? The fact that you cheated on me? The fact that our girls caught you sneaking her out of your room? Or what? Why did you come here Jed? Why?"
Jed looked at his extremely infuriated wife. She had every reason to be pissed at him. Every right. But that didn't make him like it. Softly, Jed said, "I'm sorry... I love you."
"You don't get to love me anymore, Jed. Never again... Not ever again."
"I left her." He said quietly.
"Did you? Or did she leave you?" Abbey said, finding no comfort in his words, like he had hoped.
"In the interest of honesty, it may have been a mutual thing."
"GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE NOW!!! AND NEVER COME BACK!!!" Abbey screamed at him.
Hearing the very loud, very intense, very upset words of Abbey, Leo came running into his apartment, stopping dead in his tracks when he found Jed there. Leo looked to his former best friend, with the coldest eyes imaginable. Seeing Abbey's eyes light up as he heard the door open behind him, Jed spun around to see Leo.
