The AcesIn his hotel room, he took a long hot shower to melt away the memories and thought about what to tell Peter. He stepped out of the tub because he knew what he had to do next. If it were up to him, he would have stayed in the shower forever. In his mind, his sins would take forever to melt away. He dialed the number with a weak hand, but the plan needed to go into effect.

“Hello, Peter?”

“Hello, Carey. How are you?” Peter asked.

“I’m fine. How are you?”

“In good health, Carey. What’s wrong? You don’t sound like your merry self. In addition, you’re calling me at this hour. Keep in mind, you’re in America, and I’m in France,” Peter laughed.

“I’m sorry. I wanted you to be the first to know that Sandra and I are breaking up.”

“I’m so sorry to hear it. You and Sandra were the perfect couple. I thought you two would get married in a year or so. I can still remember you two mentioning having children and living in Wales. What happened?” Peter asked.

“Her heart belongs to her childhood sweetheart named Raphael. I believe Raphael is the best thing for her and I’m happy for her. We’re planning to break the news to the media a month after the awards show.”

“If you need to talk, you know you can call me anytime,” Peter said seriously.

“I’ll remember that.”

“You better, good night,” Peter said.

“Cheers.”

Carey put the phone down; damage control was in effect.

Carey wished he could go into a deep depression and sleep in his bed all day. He knew he was going to get a call and he didn’t want it. He felt like he had to talk to a tax collector. “Hello,” he said when he picked up the ringing phone.

“What the bloody hell…” a girl’s voice carried through the phone.

“I’m sorry. After the last incident, I can’t trust you. I told Peter about the break-up,” Carey said to Sandra while sitting up in his bed.

“Good. I’ll sign the bloody papers. I’m sorry about the whole thing. How long are you going to be in the States?” Sandra asked.

“I don’t know. I have to promote the movie and I received another script from the studio. It’s about a man living in New York and he meets the girl of his dreams. Do you want me to meet you at your house before the awards show? Remember, you owe me this,” Carey said.

More to come, as always, on Monday!
