“Kate has nothing to do with us.”
“Fine, we’ll leave her out of this. You don’t find that at all morally compromising? Being involved in a complicated relationship with one woman while being in love with another? The Edward I know would never be capable of using someone for sex.”
That was it.
“You god-damned hypocrite! How do you do it? After everything you put me through, you have the audacity to sit there and judge me? You—the woman to whom I willingly gave every bit of myself, only for you to callously inform me I’d been nothing more to you than a good lay.”
“And I’m sorry for that. I don’t know how many times I can tell you I’m sorry!”
“Tell me, Bella, were you even faithful to me?”
“I’m not even going to dignify that with a response.‚”She rolled her eyes, then softened her demeanor. “I hurt you; I know that. I’m willing to own it, and I’m prepared to apologize until the end of time. Hell, I’ll even grovel. I’ll withstand anything, if it’s what it will take for you to forgive me—except that. You do not get to call me a slut.”
