"Something's bothering you," Tom says, looking at you suspiciously. It's Monday morning and Jason hasn't been answering any of your calls.

"I'm fine," you smile, hoping it's believable. Your eyes betray you and he sees through your charade.

"Liar. Is it because of whatever happened on Saturday?"

You hadn't told him what had happened, and he didn't ask. Until now. You sigh and decide to tell him what's going on. If he's worried about you he won't leave you alone until he knows what's wrong.

"It's just a bad day. I forgot to set my alarm last night, so I woke up late, I got stuck in traffic, I forgot my umbrella and got soaked from the rain, I spilled coffee on you earlier, and to top it all off, Jason and I broke up on Saturday," you somehow manage to get this all out in one breath. The tears build in your eyes until they begin to pour over and roll down your cheeks.

"Oh, darling, I'm so sorry," Tom says, wrapping his arms around you.

You bury your face in his chest and smell his cologne. It somehow makes you feel a little bit better.

"What happened?"

"He found a pregnancy test that a friend of mine took. Now he thinks I was cheating on him...with you."

It's silent for a moment as he lets this sink in. You pull away from him to look at his face. He looks sad, like he believes that this is all his fault. You realize then that he does think it's his fault, and you know that you need to get the thought out of his head.

"No, Tom. Don't think that. It's not your fault." He almost looks surprised, as though you read his mind.

"Is there anything I can do? Maybe I could talk to him and explain things." You're shaking your head before he even finishes the sentence.

"He won't talk to me. He was pretty upset. My apartment was completely trashed on Saturday. Besides, if he can't trust me, I don't know if we were meant to be." You look at Tom and he nods, showing he understands what you're feeling. "I'm just glad I found out about his trust issues before we got to serious," you sigh.

"Let me take you out for dinner to help you feel better. Maybe on Friday, after filming? They won't need me to do much, they're filming a lot of Robert that day."
