VERITY
Things were difficult with Mike by the end. He was too much, too controlling - sometimes, I was afraid of him. But Ive moved on now. I'm getting married to the man of my dreams - he looks after me, but he doesn't stifle me. Mike and the games we used to play - that's all in the past now.

It's time to move on.
Mike and I are finished.

MIKE
It was just a matter of time until she came back to me. After what I did, maybe she's right to make me wait. But Verity knows how sorry I am. And the messages she sends me, the way she calls me, the way she acted last time I saw her - no-one acts like that if they've stopped caring.

She'll be mine again.
No matter who stands in my way.
