The Love Letter- Part 5
stared at Gabrielle as she tried to reach out to him, and the only thing he felt was the anger boiling up inside him. She
had put Nora in here and now here she was trying to "comfort" him. well he would tell her what she could do with her Comfort?
She could go straight to hell.
Bo: What the hell are you doing here Gabrielle? I don't want you here.
How could I let you go through this alone? I know how much Nora means to you.
Bo: Really? then why did you try to
Gabrielle: how could you say that? What kind of person do you think I am?
Bo: You know what? I asked
myself that question a thousand times and I never came up with an answer. (Pause) I thought I knew you Garielle. I thought
you were kind and decent and caring. I bent over backwards trying to prove to everyone that you deserved a second chance.
And how do you repay that trust? You stab me in the back. You go after my best friend.
Gabrielle: I haven't gone after
anyone. I'm here to help.
Bo: that's a bunch of bull and you know it. You destroyed her home and her memories... and
when that wasn't enough you tried to burn it down. well I'll tell you something right now Gabrielle. If anything happens to
her... if, God forbid, she dosn't make it... you are going to wish you had burned to death with her... because I will make
it my personal mission in life to make sure you never see the light of day... I will make your life a living hell... I will
make you wish you had never been born. Do I make myself clear?
Gabrielle: My God, what has she done to you? What kind
of spell has she got you under? I don't even recognize you anymore.
Bo: I'm the one who dosn't recognize YOU. You're
exactly like Lindsay Rappaport. and you know how that turned out? just Go away Gabrielle. I don't give a dam what you do...
or who you do for that matter. I just don't want to see your face again.
Gabrielle(Tears in her eyes): No... no you
can't mean that. You're lying.
Bo: Do I have to have you arrested for stalking? Just Go.. get out of my sight. You
make me want to puke.
Gabriele: Why? Why are you doing this to me? why?
Bo: Don't you get it? the minute you
tried to kill Nora was the minute you checked out on our relationship. Did you really expect me to be happy that you nearly
killed us both? it makes me sick thinking about what you did.
Gabrielle: and what about you? You're not exactly Mr.
innocent. I saw you making love to her... over and over again. What exactly did you think that would do to ME?
I'm sorry for the way it happened Gabrielle... believe it or not I didn't want to hurt you.
Gabrielle: But you're
not sorry it happened are you?
Bo: No. the truth is that If I could do things over again I would do them exactly the
same way. I wanted to make love to her. I was the one who seduced her... not the other way around.
the wind knocked out of her): I don't believe this. I just don't believe this.
Bo: I guess I should at least be honest
with you. I've got nothing left to lose. (Pause) I'm in love with her Gabrielle. There, I said it. I finally said what I was
so afraid to admit, even to myself. I am in love with Nora Buchanan.
Gabrielle(staring at him angry): You bastard.
and with that she slapped him across the face and left.
Bo: well at least she finally got the picture.
returned to the window and watched them hook her up to machines when he heard Viki's voice.
Viki: Hey sweetheart.
He turned around to face her.
Bo: thanks for coming. I'm not sure I could do this alone.
I wouldn't be anywhere else. Nora happens to be one of my best friends. So are you.
[they hug] a couple minutes later
the doctor comes out.
Bo: Hey doc.. what's the verdict?
