" YES." He dug his face into his knees busting out crying " I loved him and I dont know why.... He- he left us I was in-the stations- Oh god." his voiced cracked "I didnt- god I didnt know he was gonna kill you." he ran out of breath and his voice cracked like a crying kid " Oh god"
"I loved him it was wrong but i did and i admit that it wasent right but he was the only one who remembered me who wanted too talk too me who needed me but now i know and i see that he was just using me and I swear if I could I would go back too that day somehow take the bullet I would." Andrew looked up at Tara His eyes bloodshot "But i cant." he said his lips quivering shaking his head looking at the crying Tara
Tara wipes a hand across her face " I know the feeling of finally finding one who cares for you " she said with a sniffle .
"And I .......acpet that you would do that " she told him . "I not mad at you Andrew " she said touching his face for a few seconds.
Tara looks at him " I wanted to get back together with Willow but I never will now " he said . Taking a deep breath even thought she was a
ghost she says " I cant be mad at you for what ........he did " she said softy .
"wait a minuet.... thats what I was doing it involved you! Wheres the book? Andrew serched around and then the thought popped in his head and he turned too everyone "Im sorry i gotta do this." and he ran out the door to the room before here he dropped the book
In frustration Faith calls after the fleeing Andrew:
- 'What the hell Andrew? You don't go runnin' off in a creepy mystery house with demons and spooks flyin' around. Rule 1 of surviving past the second act y'got it?'
She walks over to the parlor fireplace and grabs a poker, a better weapon than nothing at all.
Willow shakes her head in Faith's direction as she tries to watch the closed doors.
- 'I think he feels so guilty that he doesn't care if gets hurt or not. I mean, I've kinda been there myself.'
- 'Yeah, well I care if he gets hurt 'cause I'm gonna have to carry his but out of here if he gets chewed on. That's gonna make me cranky. Y'hear that Andy?'
- 'I'll tell you what I do hear'...
Willow gestures to the door in front of you.
The distant rhythmic thumps that have been circling suddenly come closer. The doors in front of you rattle in their hinges as something on the other side presses against them.
