"nathan calm down. im not doing anything wrong." Siva said to Nathan.
"hmm, kissing your EX-girlfriend while you have a girlfriend sounds wrong to me. but I don't know what relationship rules you follow. so I'm probably wrong."
"i have no girlfriend she LEFT me!"
"you're real low Siva. she didn't leave you. she's in the ARMY. you knew what you signed up for."
"usually when a person gets deployed they have time to say goodbye at least. and what the hell would you know about any of this?!"
" I know that Artemis loves you with all of her heart. and would never EVER leave you if she had another choice. I thought you of all people would know that."
"i thought she loved me. get out nathan."
"No. She needs to get out." Nathan points to Nareesha.
"dont worry about her."
"Dont worry about her?!" Nathan looked like Siva had slapped him. Siva shoves Nath back
"Leave Nathan!" Just as Siva pushes Nath, Jay walks in.
" HEY! HEY! whats going on here boys!?" Jay separates the two.
"I came in here, and found these two snogging on the couch." Nathan said, Jay looks from Nareesha to Siva.
"you have a girlfriend mate. thats not cool." Jay says.
"FOR THE LAST TIME. I DON'T HAVE A GIRLFRIEND. SHE LEFT ME. BOTH OF YOU MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS. THIS IS MY LIFE AND I CAN DO WHAT I'D LIKE WITH IT!" Siva shouted.
"Come on Nath. he's a grown man. if he wants to dig his own grave... let him." Jay said.
"Jay. I can't. Think about Artemis."
"i know, but he's got his mind set."
"Siva, what if she didn't leave you. You'd be cheating on her. You'd break her heart."
"she walked away. that was her choice."
"God dammit Siva. Use your brain."
"Nathan Come on." Jay says grabbing nath and pulling him out the door. they leave.Siva sighs, then turns back to Nareesha.
"should i leave?" Nareesha asks him. Siva shakes his head and sits down, and puts his head in his hands. Nareesha rubs his back.
"It will be ok, I'm here." she says. he doesnt respond. his phone rings. he answers.
"WHAT THE HELL! I JUST GOT A CALL FROM NATHAN AND AS YOUR BROTHER THERE ARE CERTAIN RESPONSIBILITIES I HAVE." Kumar yelled into the phone. Siva sighed.
" Kumar i dont need this from you right now. Can you please be on my side about this?"
"I'm never on the side of a cheater."
"Kumar, you're my twin. i'd expect you of all people to understand that she left me"
"FOR GOD'S SAKE SHE DIDN'T LEAVE YOU!"
"is there no one who's on my side in this!!!"
" Siva, didn't you ever stop and think maybe Artemis got deployed?"
" I'm tired of explaining this, she would've said goodbye, she'd have made time for that." he hands up.
"did you just hang up on Kumar?" Nareesha asks him. Siva get's up without answering and goes out back. Nareesha follows him. "seev what are you planing to do about all of this? about us?"
"you still want me after all of this?" Siva asked
"i love you Siva. I'll always want you." she smiles at him. he kisses her forehead, but his mind is on Artemis.
"Then theres your answer." he smiled down at her.
