Amahle sits quietly in the car as Terrence drives. Terrence keeps glancing at her out of the corner of his eye until he finally speaks.
TERRENCE: I think maybe I should move out for a bit, so you can have some space.
AMAHLE: You want to leave?
TERRENCE: Isn’t that what you want? I feel like me being around is just hurting you more.
AMAHLE: That’s not what I want…
Amahle looks out the window and sighs deeply.
AMAHLE: I want things back to how they were. I want you not to have cheated on me. I want to be the mother of your child. Only, none of that can happen, can it?
TERRENCE: I can’t apologise enough for what happened. I’m so sorry.
AMAHLE: Tell me why you did it! Why her? Why wasn’t I good enough for you? What did I do wrong?
Terrence hesitates for a moment. He places a hand on her thigh. She tenses but doesn’t move it.
TERRENCE: (taking a deep breath) The truth is, she was there at a time when you weren’t. You were taking more cases at work and you weren’t home much, and I got lonely, I guess.
AMAHLE: So you cheated ‘cause you were lonely? Oh, and let’s not forget my being busy being a lawyer drove you into another woman’s arms.
TERRENCE: No, I…I don’t know how to explain it. It was just a moment, one single moment that meant nothing, and now that moment could ruin everything.
AMAHLE: A moment that meant nothing. If only she hadn’t fallen pregnant, then we wouldn’t be having this conversation. You would’ve cheated and I’d be none the wiser.
TERRENCE: I am sorry, Amahle! What I did was low and I didn’t mean to hurt you. I just want you to forgive me, I need you to forgive me. Please!
AMAHLE: (hysterical) Well, I don’t forgive you! You hurt me in the worst way possible! So no, I don’t forgive you.
Amahle begins to weep and Terrence is helpless as he drives.
TERRENCE: (distraught) Please, baby, I don’t want to lose you.
Amahle looks away and continues crying. Terrence turns his attention back to driving. At that moment he sees a truck and tries to swerve out of the way. Amahle is jolted and she sees two bright lights headed towards them, and covers her eyes with her hands.
