That wasn't exactly the type of reaction he had expected. He didn't know what to expect, but he didn't think complete shock was a good sign. "Noooooooo..." he said slowly. "I had planned to break up with her because of those text messages you showed me. I mean, who else could have gotten hold of my phone and sent those messages to you? It had to be her." He shrugged. "She admitted to it, too."
Lauren had said forget about the letter, but it was something that--once said--couldn't be taken back. Their relationship had changed because of that letter, and he wasn't sure what to do or how to fix things again so they would be comfortable with each other. This was even worse than the year-long silence they had just broken. And in a way, it was better, too, although Tristan couldn't pinpoint exactly why it was better.
