Merida Confronts Sage

Merida Confronts Sage

“Sage, before I get changed for the wedding, I need to talk to you about Lodie.”

“Why do you need to talk to me about Lodie?”

“I’m not blind, you know. It’s obvious that there is something going on between you two.”

“I admit that I’m attracted to her.”

“And she’s attracted to you but what about Aishwarya? She’s still your girlfriend.”

“I know.”

“I think Lodie and you should stop hanging out with each other.”

“Did Aishwarya talk to you about it?”

“Well, she did mention that you and Lodie were spending too much time together.”

“We went for a walk on the beach twice.”

“I don’t think you and she should go for any more walks or be alone together anymore. It isn’t fair to Aishwarya.”

“I thought you didn’t like Aishwarya.”

“I don’t but it doesn’t mean that I like what you’re doing to her.”

“And what exactly am I doing to her?”

“Are you kidding me? You are going off alone with another woman whom Aishwarya knows you’re attracted to. How do you think that makes her feel? You’re her boyfriend. You have no business going for walks on the beach with Lodie. As long as you are still in a relationship with you, you need to stay away from Lodie. Lodie is my best friend. I don’t want her to get hurt.”

“I would never hurt Lodie. I’m crazy about her.” He was actually in love with her.

“Well, if you really care about her, stay away from her.”

Sage sighed heavily. “All right. I’ll stay away from Lodie.”

“Good. What are you going to do about Aishwarya?”

“I’m going to break up with her when we get back to London.”

“And then, what?”

“I’m going to date Lodie.”

“Right after you break up with Aishwarya?”

“How long do you think I should wait?”

“Maybe a month.”

“I can’t wait that long, Merida.”

“All right. A couple of weeks then.”

“I can’t help feeling sorry for Aishwarya. It’s obvious that she’s in love with you.”

“I wish I didn’t have to hurt her.”

“I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, you should have broken up with her before you came to Ibiza.”

“You’re right. I should have ended our relationship a long time ago.”

“One more thing. I don’t think it would be a good idea for you and Lodie to dance with each other. If you’re going to dance, you can dance with the other women there besides Aishwarya.”

“Don’t worry. I will keep my distance from Lodie and dance only with Aishwarya. Now, I think it’s time that we got ready for the wedding.”

“All right. I’ll go and get ready.” She went over to him and hugged him. “Love you.”

“I love you too.”

Merida left and Sage undressed. He walked into bathroom to take a shower. He wasn’t sure how he was going to get through the wedding reception seeing Elodie and not being able to get a moment alone with her.
