She hesitated, afraid to say the words aloud. "Like make me good, really good. Before, I was, you know, sinking, then he came along; his music and everything. Chris is why I got the role of Eva."
Isa snorted. "That's crazy. What, are you channeling him? He's not the one on stage."
"But he's the one here." Lucy tapped her chest.
Isa burst into laughter, rolling onto her back. "That's the stupidest thing I ever heard."
Her feelings now hurt, Lucy's eyes teared up. "Never mind."
"Oh c'mon, L. Don't get all weepy. You don't need this guy if he makes you feel like nothing unless you're with him. This isn't you."
"How do you know? You don't even know me." Tears spilled down Lucy's cheeks.
Isa tried to catch Lucy's eyes. "What does that mean?"
"You know, I have a lot of studying to do, so you should go." Lucy wiped her cheeks, angry at herself for thinking Isa would be on her side. The only side Isa was on was her own.
"Fine." Isa headed to the door. "But maybe you should take tonight off. Get some space." Then she closed the door behind her.
