LOVE
So was hannen?

HONEY
Nothing much just here and you?

LOVE
Nothing just been thinking bout some stuff.

HONEY
About what?  Is it BAD?

LOVE
Nah, I dunno.  Its just crazy how you still don’t make up your mind.

HONEY
OMG.  It’s hard why don’t you understand that.

LOVE
Understand what!?  You expect me to not trip.  Man you flappin yo wings on other Doves.  What is it you expect me to understand?

HONEY
You’re the first female dove I…I don’t know OKAY its really difficult.   What do you want me to do.

LOVE
Make a damn desecion.  (Love takes a breath)  Look Honey I don’t care if its me or not me.  You should know theres only one love.

HONEY
I fell in love with you and its hard cause Im in love with someone else.  Id never thought I would fall for a female dove and I did.  I feel pressured for me to do this whole situation even talk about this.  You’re my first and I dont know how to react.  I don’t know if im ready to open up.

LOVE
You know, I never told you this before.  I have heard so many things about you they aint good either.  But I still took the time to get to know you.

HONEY
Things like what?

LOVE
That don’t matter.  And plus you should already know you the one who did it.

HONEY
Whats that suppose to mean?

LOVE
Nothing figure it out yourself.

HONEY
Are you mad or something whats with the attitude?

LOVE
Im not mad, just disappointed.  Im over here trying to work things out and your just being all Blah!

HONEY
Okay im trying to choose but your still not understanding.  I dont know how else to do this.  It’s hard.

LOVE
Its hard this is hard that do you have something else to say or is that it.

HONEY
You dont know how it feels.

LOVE
HAHA, I do know how it feels ive been through it  I’ve had to choose.  I was stuck torn in between the two.  A male and a female.  I chose who treated me better and it was a girl.  I just find it crazy that I treat you so good like an angel and all your lil boys wanna do is flap wings with you.

HONEY
Well I didn’t know that.

LOVE
Well don’t say something if you don’t have your facts straight.

HONEY
Well with my boy dove its different.

LOVE
How is it different!  You don’t know nuthin do you!  He’s flapping his wings.  He don’t love you get it through your head.  He’s known as a flapper.  He has done it to his last dove girl he was with.  I don’t know why you don’t understand that.

HONEY
(attitude)  My boy dove doesnt do that to me.

LOVE
Well you oviously don’t hear whats going around the pond.

HONEY
(attitude)  Its not true he loves me.

LOVE
You oviously don’t know what true love really is.  When you love someone you don’t treat them like there just another dove on the side.

HONEY
He really did that to me?!

LOVE
Duh!  Open those dam little eyes of yours!

HONEY
This always happens to me.  I always get screwd over.

LOVE
No it doesn’t.  I DIDN’T treat you bad, I DIDN’T flap my wings with anyone else.  I kept it hundred.

HONEY
Yeah I know its I don’t know.  Im confused about all this.  Being with you.

LOVE
So many doves tell me let go leave her you can do better.  But no Im here.  I stayed after all you done to me, after how much you hurt me.  I stayed because Im madley in love with you .  You made me feel good when we were hanging out and you taught me what love really is.  You taught me respect and how to love something, someone.  I didn’t care before but now I do.  Sometimes I really don’t know why I even bother.

HONEY
I’m sorry.  I don’t know what to say.

LOVE
Sorry don’t cut it.  I thought I knew the real you but I don’t .  Your true colors came out.  I’m done with you.

HONEY
(confused) Wait what?  What did you just say?

LOVE
We’re thru.  I gave you 6 months and we’re still standing.  I did everything I can.  I tried to work it out.  Now Im done…Your just a stranger in my eyes.  Im sorry but bye.

(Flys away)

HONEY
(Sad look and watches Love leave.  Talking to herself)
Man I didnt use my time wisely.  Its too late.  I just wish we can go back to a year ago when everything was good.  I love her, Im in love with her.  I messed up everything.  I really should of chose.  Ugh.  Snap!  I should of told her I’m scared to have true love.  She made me realize that I mean something in life.  I’m here for a purpose Love & Peace to be in love to find love to be happy to be loved.  She made me feel beautiful.  She treated me so good.  I’m going to do so much better.  She taught me how love really felt.

LOVE
(Still flying talking to herself)
Why am I crying, I did the right thing, right?  She broke my heart.  I don’t know what to do.  I never felt this way.  I didn’t think I was this in love.  I want to be with her but I know I cant.  Im in love and I just ave up.  I should of gave her more time.  No No No Love!  Don’t think about this you did the right thing.  Just get some sleep you’ll feel better. Breath Love.  Breathe.

THE END
