Jean nodded and fell silent. She felt the tension as she followed Zed closely from behind. An uncomfortable silence cloaked the couple as they rushed towards the hospital.

When they entered the relatively calm emergency area, it was crowded and it did reek of antiseptic. Then they spotted Moore walking out of the clinic. His right cheek bandaged up and there was a band-aid just above his left brow.

Avery, who was right beside Moore, cast a worried look at Moore's wounds. She also looked like she wanted to cry out and say something to comfort Moore, but she didn't know what to say. When she was finally about to say something, Jean asked, "Moore, are you okay?" Jean, hands still locked with Zed, walked briskly along the corridor amidst the nurses and doctors to close the short distance towards Moore.

Upon noticing Zed and Jean, Avery felt like little part of the heavy load was taken off her chest and she could now breathe a bit better.

"As you can see, I'm fantastic," replied Moore, a bit embarassed. He turned towards Zed and asked him with a serious expression, "Why are you guys here?"

"Adolf called. He told us what happened," explained Zed. "Jean was incredibly worried, so we came as fast as we could."

"Jesus, Moore, why'd you fight?" Jean blurted out, no longer able to keep it to herself.

"Well, I..." Moore paused before he could finish his words. He really didn't know what to answer. He smiled bitterly, and was about to open his mouth.

"This is all my fault," Avery said, her voice quivering with guilt. "It was because of me. I was the reason why Moore got into that fight."

"Then would you please enlighten me what the hell happened there?" demanded Zed, clearly eager to get to the bottom of the situation.

"Actually, it was nothing that serious. For other people, I guess, but it was plenty serious to me. That afternoon, the director had to attend to some other business, so he assigned the assistant director to see the shoot through. The thing was, for whatever reason, this assistant director kept saying horrible things about Avery's performance. Although I saw with my own two eyes that Avery's acting was superb, he asked her to repeat the same scenes over and over again dozens of times. In one particular shot where Avery just had to look back smiling, the assistant director, he said...he said..."

The memory of the director's words filled Moore with anger. His face was livid. He stammered and couldn't even finish the sentence since he was overcome with emotion.

"What did he say?" Jean curiously asked.

"He said smiling gently was the most basic and fundamental aspect of acting, but Avery couldn't even pull that off. He insulted her, Jean. He sa

ed Jean angrily.

"Hey, hey. I'm at our friend's side here. I'm just saying, he should own up to his mistakes," replied Zed frankly.

"I don't... I don't even want to talk to you right now," Jean said angrily. She quickly averted her gaze and avoided Zed's determined eyes.

Jean's response made Zed smirk. He walked towards Moore, and sighed before saying, "Moore, listen. I'm not saying this because I thought the assistant director was right. I'm saying this because I think you should think about how negatively this would affect Avery. There would be consequences if what happened back there gets publicized."

"I know that." Moore nooded grimly in agreement, and then added, "I'll apologize. I'll look at the director in the eyes and apologize, even if it frustrates me so much. But I'm willing to do this for Avery."

As soon as Avery heard Moore's words, her head shot up, her expression worried and anxious. "Moore, you know you don't have to do this for me."

"No, I shouldn't have lost my temper. I shouldn't have put you in this situation." Moore added while shaking his head, his tone hurt, "I was too impulsive, too rash. I lost my temper and I didn't stop to think of the consequences. I should have been more considerate."

"No, Moore. It wasn't your fault at all. I just wasn't myself today. If I was, this wouldn't have..." Avery's heart was heavy with remorse. The more guilty Moore was, the more upset she got.

Avery should have been happy to see Moore stand up for her when she was being treated like that.

This showed that Moore really cared about her.

What upset Avery the most was the fact that Moore would go and apologize to that man.

The Moore she loved was a proud man.

How would he endure humbling himself before someone?

No, Avery didn't think he could.
