Who: Dave and Blaine
When: The night of Dave’s “moving party”
Where: Dave’s apartment
What: An unexpected visitor arrives to try and help Dave get away from Barry. But Dave, as always, has a surprise for the visitor.
Dave…I don’t know what to say. Every time I try to make you feel better, or apologize, you just get angry. I don’t know what to do.
(private: I’m sorry. I’m so, so sorry.)
Stop it. Stop pretending to care about me. Just go live your perfect life with your perfect boyfriends and I’ll go be with someone who wants me and protects me and maybe punishes me when I get out of line but I probably deserved it in the first place.
And yes he did do that to me, though why it matters I can’t imagine. I broke one of the rules bringing you that soup. I shouldn’t have. I was out of line. I’ll let your family take care of you from now on.
And it hurt to be punished. A lot. But nothing, I repeat, nothing hurts more than the fact that this whole mess ever started. I can’t ever make enchiladas again. I nearly had a panic attack at my cooking class at Trader Joes because they were trying to teach me veggie enchiladas and I thought of you.
You may not have wanted to hurt anyone, but it’s not your fault. You’re special and beautiful and I’m just a bumbling idiot whose been alone too long to recognize when he should just shut the hell up and get over himself. You’re not listening to me, Dave! You’re still one of my friends - of course I care about you. No matter what you did, you don’t deserve to be physically punished for it by your boyfriend. That’s not okay in any sense of the word. You’re worth so much more than that, Dave. Be with someone who respects you. You’re not a bumbling idiot and I’m not that special. We wouldn’t have worked out romantically, but that doesn’t mean you should just date the first guy that comes along because you’re lonely, or something. It’s better to be alone that to be abused.
I’ll be happy with my real Ohana. Do you even know how big a risk I’m taking talking with you right now?! I’ll probably be punished for it. But whatever. That’s all my life is now anyways. Everyday I glance around somewhere and I see you. This is hell. Life without you is hell. By the way, your vision came true Mr. “My Visions Aren’t A Guarantee”.
Punished?! Dave, do you really want to be with someone who will punish
you for talking to someone? I’m sorry. That’s all I can say. I know you probably don’t care, but I hate that I hurt you. I never wanted that. Are you okay? Did Barry do that to you?
Please. Like you don’t know. Like the whole kingdom’s not talking about it. Fine. I’ll spell it out for you. I’m in a big, gay relationship with him. He wants me. He’s willing to take care of me as long as you and me are not friends anymore. He hates you. THERE IT IS. THE TRUTH. ARE YOU HAPPY NOW?! EVERYONE WINS. I didn’t know, actually. I’m still not feeling too great so I’ve taken the past week off of work. Congratulations, though. It doesn’t matter if I’m happy, Dave. Are you happy?
Barry was right then. About you. About me. Don’t worry. He’ll make me forget you. He promised he would. Maybe it won’t be as wholesome and good as your beloved fairy tales but maybe it won’t be the worst thing in the world either. Don’t say that! I’m not the end for you. There are tons of single guys out there that are a million times better for you than I could ever be. What does Barry even have to do with this?
Wish you could smile at me like this again, but I know what we are now. And it was always too late.
I’m sorry I can’t be what you need.
