OK, enough was enough. “Are you going to be a little bitch for the rest of our lives or do you think you actually might forgive me at some point?” she snapped. She had apologized a million times for what happened to Mhairi. Tobe knew how much she’d cared about the old woman. Why was she punishing her for this?!
Tobe drew to a stop, her features tight with anger. She swiped at her sweaty forehead. “Excuse me?” she asked, her accent seeming more pronounced with her anger. “ ae’ you talkin’ tae me?”
Yeah… way more pronounced.
“No, Mr. DeNiro, I’m talking to my friend Tobe,” Eden cracked.
Tobe grimaced at her lame Taxi Driver joke. “We’re not friends.”
“Yeah we are.”
“Naw, we’re not.”
“Yeah, we are. Or we will be once you forgive me.” She pleaded with her eyes. “I don’t like making myself vulnerable to people, Tobe. Surely my sitting here begging you like a virgin quarterback on prom night means something to you.”
“Now that was just disturbing.”
