“Just say it. Admit the truth to me, Malcolm. I don’t want some false goodbye letter. You tell me you are picking Keisha over me. Tell me that you don’t love me. That it’s her. That it’s something so special about her that you’re willing to throw away what you have with me. Is she that special to you, Malcolm? Is this thing with Keisha that important?” she asked genuinely.
