“It is what it is,” Jay knows that isn’t what Unique wants to hear, and he’s tired of the back and forth and getting nowhere when it comes to these useless conversations with her. So he keeps it short and simple.
Frustrated, Unique is silent. No point in arguing with herself. She loves Jay, but right now, she can’t stand him. Usher’s “Bad Habits” is playing in the background and quite appropriate for the moment. Jay is to this relationship what oil is to water.
Angry, confused, and on the verge of a nervous breakdown, Unique has questions but no answers. “Why can’t he speak the love for me that his eyes show when he looks into mine?”
Searching but not looking is an understatement coming from Jay. He has been in search of something but nothing for decades. And will not stop until whatever it is finds its way to him.
