Undeniable Part 12
Keesha stood in the doorway and looked at Jason in total disbelief. "You actually broke up with Saint Robin. Ms. can't do any wrong, never tells a lie, pretend to be everybody's friend Robin."
"Yes," he said.
I don't believe it. She thought to herself. He actually dumped the little bitch. A feeling of total retribution swept through Keesha. Oh how she wished she could have been there to see Robin's face. She probably didn't even see it coming. She probably felt like a Mack truck slammed into her heart.
If only he had done this a year ago or even months ago, during her attempts to reunite with him. Keesha would have taken him back in a heartbeat. But now so many things had changed.
"Well, aren't you going to say something?" he asked.
"Oh, I'm sorry. Is this the part where, I'm supposed to jump for joy and run into your arms?" she asked, unwilling to play his game.
"No, but I thought….."
"You thought wrong," Keesha, said unwilling to let him finish his sentence. "I never asked you to breakup with the Bird, but it's good to see you've finally come to your senses. But nothing has changed Jason. I'm still going to marry AJ," she stated.
"Yeah, you'll marry a man you're not in love with, because you don't have the guts, to be with the man you really love."
Her slap stung the right side of his face. "How dare you!" she yelled. "Don't have the guts! I sat by your beside everyday, praying for you to wake up, to be okay. Then what happened, you woke up and instead of being happy to see me, you tossed me aside," she said, through burning tears.
"But despite your rejection, I still had the guts to try again, only to be slapped with more rejection, with your relationship with Robin. "Don't you dare stand there and tell me about guts," she yelled. "If you had any guts, you wouldn't have turned your back on us."
"If AJ hadn't been there for me during those rough times, I don't know what I would have done."
"You're right, I did toss you away," he said, finally realizing the depth of her pain. "I didn't try to make things work with you. But it wasn't that I was afraid," he hesitated. "It's just that…
"It's just that, what?" she asked.
"It was easier not to," he said. "I would see the hope in your eyes. Wanting so badly for me to remember what you shared with Jason Quartermane. It was just too hard, too stressful."
For the first time, Keesha was beginning to see things from his point of view. "I guess the added pressure from the Quartermanes didn't help matters?"
"No, it didn't," he said standing on the front porch. "But, having the man you love not remember that love must've been devastating."
"Yes, it was," she said.
"So, why Robin?" she asked. "I mean I can see how you would view her as a friend, but a lover?" rolling her eyes.
"Robin made things easy. She didn't judge me or make demands. She just let me be. If it weren't for her, I would have been on a path of self-destruction," he said.
"Oh, so instead of being on a path of self-destruction, you work for the mob! Sounds logical to me."
"Look, what I'm trying to say, is Robin was there for me, I guess the same way AJ was there for you," he said. "She's a good person, who looked out for my best interest."
Keesha looked at him dumbfounded. "You really have bought into that whole sweet and innocent act of hers!"
"Robin is a lot of things, but sweet and innocent isn't, she's not," Keesha said, the sound of bitterness in her voice. "She's a conniving little bitch, who isolated you from your loved ones and manipulated you in making the choice to work for Sonny."
"No one manipulated me, it was my choice," he said angrily. "You still see me as some brain damaged idiot who's incapable of making decisions on his own."
"That's not true," she said. "If it's one thing I've noticed in these last few months, it's that you have your own mind. But you turn a blind eye to Robin. Like so many others in Port Charles. I'm even guilty of doing it too. I trusted her with my deepest thoughts during your recovery. And she used it too her advantage keep us apart."
"Your wrong Keesha."
"Really. Tell me, how did she take the news of your breakup?"
"Naturally, she was hurt. But, Robin's a rational person. After she's gotten over the initial pain, she'll see it was for the best," he said. The only thing Robin is guilty of is protecting me," he said. "But I can understand your being jealous…"
"I take it back. You are an idiot," she yelled heading towards her car. "No correction, you're a fucking clueless idiot!"
"Why, because I'm right about you being jealous?" he said following her to the car.
"No, because you really think she's just going to let you go," she said unable to hide her annoyance and anger.
"You're being irrational," he said.
Shaking her head. "Ignorance is really bliss."
"What does that mean?" he asked.
"It means that you're a fool, if you think this is over in Robin's mind," she said before speeding off leaving Jason in a trail of dust.
"I know it's not over between us," he said watching until the car was out of sight.
