Elizabeth pretends she went to sleep, waiting for Ethan to do the same. He lays there and thinks for a while, before falling asleep. He just thinks about everything she has said to him. There was no passion? This is how she felt all this time? The thoughts just invade his mind, making it hard for him to fall asleep.
When he does, Elizabeth gets out of bed going into her office, taking her phone with her. She sits in her desk chair, feeling this urgency to call Brian. Then she is scared. How about if he doesn’t answer? How about if he doesn’t want her anymore? If he realized it was just sex to him. Or that she waited too long to answer his feelings. So many things were running through her mind. She was jittery inside, not knowing what to do.
She missed him so much, she was at the point she just wanted to leave and go with him. Not even caring what the outcome would be. Just not sure he felt the same anymore.
4:03 Elizabeth: Brian, I miss you. I need you.
Elizabeth writes on her phone. Just holding it there. Not sending.
“How about if he doesn’t feel the same. Or he doesn’t answer It.” She says to herself. Hitting backspace and removing it. Sitting there curled up with her knees in her arms. Holding the cell phone.
