He wants to apologize. Are you seriously sorry, Maya says. Are you sorry you sold a lot of magazines. Bill admits he’s not. He’s in business to make money, He made a damn good business decision. In this case, where it crossed family lines he should have asked for an exclusive.
Instead he smelled blood and went in for the kill. It was a mistake and he wants to apologize. His attack was cruel and unnecessary but hanging onto anger doesn’t do anyone any good. Stay and enjoy our celebration learn that you will never scare me away. And maybe one day he will get the exclusive contingent on the profits going to a charity of her choosing.
