Felix rolled his eyes. "Well that's because I've spent all my time convincing you to back down from your asinine idea!" He scoffed. "As if there are any actors here in town! A waste of resources!"
Felix angrily pushed back from his chair. "You know your problem? You've gotten so full of yourself, you refuse to even consider my ideas or feelings!"
Crossing her arms, she added snidely, "I am not 'full of myself', sugar, I am confident because I know that I'm right!"
"Well, I guess this meeting is over, then! You do it your way and I'll do it mine. May the best man win!" Felix growled, raking his hands through his hair. "Christ, I'm glad we never wound up together!"
Yvonne sputtered indignantly. "We never would've wound up together!" she seethed.
Felix gazed at her with a look in his eye that made Yvonne's stomach flip. "Believe me, sugar. If I had wanted you, I could've had you!"
Yvonne stood up as well. "I am married, sugar! Or have you forgotten?!"
Felix shook his head. "I haven't forgotten. And I feel sorry for your husband! I bet you run right over him!"
Yvonne blanched at Felix's low blow. "Well I can assure you that my husband does not need your pity!" Crossing her arms, she added "And you're right - this meeting is over!"
She left him standing there.
"But mama, the babysitter didn't feed us dinner..." Eva said softly.
"Oh for the love of... then go! Get something for dinner! Then go to bed!" she grumbled as she hoisted Farrah up into her arms.
At her desk, Yvonne clenched her teeth. "Eva! Stop that!" she snapped. "I can't concentrate!" She wanted to get this contract out to Melvin tonight. She would show Felix!
"Sorry, mama," Eva said meekly. She hadn't even realized she was kicking the bar! Just then, she heard the front door...
It wasn't fair that mama interrupted her! I was only going to tell him a joke, Eva thought mutinously as she headed upstairs to her new bedroom.
"...Can you believe it? He accused me of being full of it!" Yvonne added indignantly.
"Really? Why would he say that?" Chase asked with surprise, used to Yvonne getting so riled by Felix. He guessed once you worked with someone so closely for so many years, you were bound to get on the other person's nerves at times. They fought like brother and sister...
Yvonne looked down, somewhat guiltily. "He said I didn't consider his feelings." Chase glanced at her, frowning. Feelings? he wondered. "Is that what you think, too?" she asked, distracting him.
"You don't think I run right over you?" she fretted.
"I don't know why you're worrying about Felix is saying. We might disagree from time to time, but the important thing is that we try to talk about what's bothering us. Right?"
Yvonne nodded, pulling her husband's head down to kiss her. He was right - she shouldn't worry about what Felix says, anyways. What does he know about anything, anyway?!
