*Willow* "So is that it? You just don't want kids?!"...*Peter shrugs*..."Not even if you think you found some one you want to spend the rest of your life with?..."
Shit! I must have been dreaming it or something...F*ck! now I can't remember, the details"
Willow shakes her head, she can't believe this.
*Willow* "You were probably in a drunken high state, you smoke way too much pot, Peter..."
Maybe it's better you can't get me pregnant."
*Peter* "It's not that I can't. I just f*cking chose not to, besides I had it done long
before we ever met!"
*Willow* "I know but you could have told me about it!"
*Peter* "I just did!.."
*Willow* "Would you be willing to reverse it?"
*Peter* "What?!...No!...C'mon, Babe..."
Peter reaches out and pulls her closer...He'd prefer
if they dropped this whole argument.
*Peter* "Yes...you know that I do!...That's why you moved in, right?"
*Willow* "If it is, then say you love me..."
his emotions. He'd rather show her how he feels under the sheets in a dark room. Being pressured to say those 3 little words,
is terrifying him.
*Willow* "Yeah, but I want to hear you say it. If you really do then
it's not that hard, Peter..."
*Peter* "Babe...I do..I..I care about you a lot..."
*Peter* "It's kinda hard, when you keep pressuring me!"
Willow wipes a few tears from her face.
She doesn't want him to see her cry, see how much it hurts her
that he can't even say 'I love you'.
Peter is at a loss for words, he doesn't know what to
do and he can't bring himself to say it.
*Willow* "If you can't say it then why are we even together?!
She takes a deep breath then heads for the bedroom door. She can't stay here another night, she needs some time to think
about this and if he's worth all of it in the end.
*Willow* "Don't follow me, I just need a minute."
Peter lets her go, he's not feeling too comfortable
right now either. So he heads to the fridge to get a beer and hope it calms his nerves.
He stands there for a moment a little spaced out.
Then the door to the bedroom opens and closes, Peter turns to see Willow with her business travel suitcase. He thinks to himself,
"Shit! This can't be good..."
*Peter* "What are you doing?!"
*Willow* "I'm leaving...I need sometime to think about us."
Willow begins to pick up some of her belongings that
are scattered around the living room.
*Willow* "There's no point, I'm leaving to L.A. tomorrow, remember?
I have that art gala I have to be at."
*Peter* "Yeah but I thought your flight isn't till midday tomorrow."
*Willow's voice slightly muffled* "Don't worry I can take of myself."
*Willow* "Yes, should be enough time for you to decide how you feel about me."
She finds a couple more items under the couch.
One is large envelope.
*Willow* "What the hell is this?
Why'd you stuff mail under your couch?"
She quickly gets up so she can see what the
mystery envelope is, making sure to hold it just right
so Peter can't see what it is just yet.
*Willow* "Oh, shit! Wow! I can't believe this has been down there all this time! And of all things for me to find, I find this!..."
*Willow* "Do you really want to know?"
*Peter* "Yes!....What the f*ck is it?!"
*Willow* "They're Luke's paternity test results, and it looks like he never opened the envelope..."
*Willow* "I'm dead serious!...I just can't believe he never opened it."
*Peter doesn't believe her* "You're full of shit! It can't be that...Now you're just f*cking with me..."
Willow begins to get more upset from his remarks, of all the things for her to find. She finds something like this and it is not helping
the situation at the moment. It's like a sign from the heavens that she needs to stop and think if Peter is the one for her, and Willow doesn't take it lightly.
She shoves the large envelope at his chest.
She's done and had enough.
*Peter* "Now I'm an assh*le?! C'mon..."
*Willow loosing her patients* "Just read the damn envelope..."
Then she begins to grab her items again. Peter
takes a quick peek at the envelope. His eyes widen when he sees that she was telling the truth.
*Peter* "What the f*ck?! This shit has been under there all this time?!"
*Willow* "I told you I wasn't lying..."
Then Peter snaps. This was exactly why he got a vasectomy, after he saw what happened between Luke and Rufus, and Luke's final decision to leave the band. He made damn sure nothing like that would ever happen to him.
crazy ass woman's baby daddy!...I've known too many guys who've had their
lives ruined because of it and Luke is one of them!"
*Willow* "Good for you Peter, for actually doing one responsible thing with your life!"
*Peter* "I too f*cked up to be a Dad..."
Willow walks to the front door of the apartment.
Then she turns and tries to open the door
but her hands are too full.
*Willow* "No...it's more than that..."
*Peter* "I'm trying, Babe...When did sh*t get so serious with you?"
*Willow* "When we moved in together, Peter!....If you don't love me then why are we even here?!"
*Peter* "Shit, babe...slow down."
can't tell me you LOVE me?!"
She stops it there, and decides it's time for her to go. She needs to focus on work for the next week to come.
Peter opens the door so she can leave and
closes it behind her.
He turns around and slams his hand on the counter in anger. He's a bit stunned by all that just happened but knows he could have easily kept her from leaving if he had just told her he loved her, but he can't.
A couple days later...
After he tried several times to call and text Willow, she never responded to any of them. Peter ends up finding himself at Bull Tavern getting drunk and later stumbling into his apartment with Hannah hanging off his neck.
Then a couple days after that, Peter ends up hooking up with Adrianna the new bartender that was hired recently at his workplace the nightclub, "The Tomb"...
wanna join me?"
Peter turns around after taking a swig of beer, he's
been numbing himself on it all week.
up to work together."
