Tori: I did something stupid.

Colby: Is this about Justin?

Tori: Sort of.

Colby: Is he ok? Did the surgery work?

Tori: No Justin’s ok. The surgery went well.

Colby: Ok then what happened?

Tori: I was so happy about Justin that I might of kissed his surgeon!

Colby: Why didn’t he kiss you back?

Tori: No he was in too much shock and I ran here!

Colby: Ok I don’t see how kissing one guy is the end of the world.

Tori: I kissed some guy I don’t even know and I don’t even know if I like him like that yet!

Colby: I’m pretty sure you will be ok.

Tori: How can you be sure?

Colby: Because your the toughest most amazing person I know. And you won’t let this break you.

Tori: How so you know the right thing to say to make me feel better.

Colby: It’s a gift.

Tori: You know I always thought I would be talking to Robbo about this stuff.

Colby: Yeah you should of been! But you have me and I’m not going anywhere!

Tori: Good! I would be a mess if you weren’t here! Losing Robbo and Mason was so hard. I can’t lose you too.

Colby: You won’t I promise.

Tori: Still no word on the investigation?

Colby: Nope. And I hope it stays that way. Ross has destoryed my life enough!

Tori: You keep talking about how strong I am but really your strong too.

Colby: Thank you.

Tori: So you want to come for a walk with me?

Colby: Do you even have to ask? I would follow you anywhere. Let’s go.

Tori: You were never second choice. But Robbo and me, yeah it was complicated!

Tori: I miss him so much.

Colby: Me too. Every day.

Tori: But we have each other and that has to be enough now.

Colby: It will be.

Christian is walking on the Beach and see’s Tori hugging some guy and wonders what their connection is? Is she with him? Are they just friends? And if they are together why did she kiss him? So many questions and he doesn’t know how to get any answers.

Tori: Wait you saw that?

Christian: Urg yeah I was out walking and saw you hugging some guy from a distance. So what’s that about?

Tori: Well I...

Christian: Am I just going to stand here asking questions and you not answering a single one? Or am I going to get an answer sometime soon?

Tori: That’s not fair! Anyway you never really gave me a chance too answer.
