Dean: What’s up with you? You have been acting werid?

Colby: Just been thinking.

Dean: About what?

Dean: Who did you break a promise to this time?

Colby: What? I didn’t!

Dean: Sure. Spill it.

Colby: Ok I might of lied.

Dean: Go on.

Colby: Robbo didn’t just ask me to look after Jasmine.

Dean: What else did he ask you? Oh Tori of course. You know I still remember thinking those 2 would end up together guess it wasn’t meant to be.

Colby: I thought that too but Jasmine.

Dean: Yes that came out of left field hey?

Colby: Well considering Tori and Robbo had a bond that I had never seen before it would make sense for it to turn romantic but Jasmine stole his heart first. I still don’t get it.

Dean: No you do. You know why and how it happened. Don’t play dumb.

Colby: Fine they couldn’t change it. They didn’t want to admit it and then the choice got taken from them. I know.

Dean: You have been a good friend for Tori as well as Jasmine this year. I can see it. Your not letting Robbo down.

Colby: If only you knew the rest. I’ve been running form it.

Dean: What’s the rest?

Colby: He didn’t just want me to look after Tori he wanted me to end up with her because he couldn’t.

Chapter 2


Colby and Bella’s Apartment


Colby is still thinking when Bella arrives home.


Colby: Hey.

Bella: Hey. What’s wrong?

Colby: Nothing.

Bella: No you have that “I’m thinking of doing something stupid” face.

Colby: What? No!

Bella: Sure.

Colby: Fine! But it’s not stupid.

Bella: Let me be the judge of that.

Colby: Me and Tori?

Bella: Really? About time! Your right that’s not stupid.

Colby: Wait what? You think we should be together?

Bella: Yes of course.

Colby: Why?

Bella: Because you and Tori are the only ones who have that bond because of Robbo. It makes sense.

Colby: You know your right.

Bella: Of course I am!

Colby: Dean was surprised when I told him.

Bella: What did you tell him?

Colby: That Robbo’s last wish was for me to look after Tori but also be with her because he couldn’t.

Bella: Wow. I...

Colby: Yeah I know. I have been running from this for a year.

Bella: Doesn’t seem like you.

Colby: I was scared. I still am.

Bella: About Tori rejecting you?

Colby: Wait you think she would?

Bella: Well your not Robbo. But Robbo isn’t here. And she valued his opinion more then anything. If he thought you guys should be together that would hold a lot of weight.

Colby: Yeah.

Bella: But you’ve had a year to do something about it and you haven’t. And Tori is with Christian now so it’s more complicated.

Colby: Why do you think I am still running...

Colby and Bella’s Apartment


Jasmine has come to visit Colby


Jasmine: Hey.

Colby: Hey.

Jasmine: What’s up?

Colby: I’m thinking.

Jasmine: About?

Colby: Me and Tori.

Jasmine: You and Tori?

Colby: About whether we should be together.

Jasmine: Really? About time!

Colby: Wait you know?

Jasmine: Of course I do. Robbo told me, we don’t keep secrets.

Colby: And your ok with that?

Jasmine: Hey I got to marry him and be happy. Tori didn’t. I feel sorry for her.

Colby: Ok.

Jasmine: So yes Robbo told me everything and I say go for it! You should of done this a year ago but you ran from it. But no more running ok.

Colby: Ok I will tell her.

Jasmine: Good.

Colby: How do you think she will take it?

Jasmine: I think she will be shocked but once she thinks about it she’ll know the right thing to do.

Colby: You think?

Jasmine: I know.

Colby: How?

Jasmine: Because Robbo knew her better than anyone. She knows he wanted her to be happy and now she can be with you. And I know she loves Christian and is with him, but Robbo never met him. And you were his best mate and he trusted you. And trusting you with the person he loved most in the world, well that would mean everything to her. She won’t turn you down I have faith.

Colby: I hope your right.
