Antoinette Breaks the News to Tony
As soon as Antoinette got to the reception area, she set off to find Tony. She wasn't sure how she was going to break the news about his father, but she knew she had to tell him something.
After finding Tony, they found a quiet spot in the courtyard to talk.
"So what's so important that it couldn't wait until after the wedding?" (Tony)
"Well, I'm not sure how to tell you this, so I will just say it. Your father is back." (Antoinette)
"My father? What do you mean? Where is he? Are you sure it was him?" (Tony)
"He was in the hotel parking lot and I got a chance to talk to him ." (Antoinette)
"Did he say where the hell he's been for the past 6 years?!" (Tony)
"Honey, your language. No, he didn't say where he's been, but I think he's ready to talk." (Antoinette)
"Are you okay?" (Antoinette)
"Yeah, I just don't know what I've feeling right now. Happiness, anger, disgust..." (Tony)
"Maybe he just couldn't handle your mother's death and he felt he had to get away for awhile." (Antoinette)
"You just don't abandon your family like that. We've been worried about him the whole time, wondering if he was dead or alive." (Tony)
"So what did he say and where is he now?" (Tony)
"He was thinking about coming to the reception, but I tried to tell him that wasn't a good idea. I told him to come by the house later instead. I wasn't sure how you and Rod would react and I didn't want him causing problems at the reception." (Antoinette)
"Maybe I should go look for him." (Tony)
"No. You need to be there for Rod. Maybe you should give him a heads up in case Freeman does show up." (Antoinette)
"I don't have a clue what I would say to him. I just don't know how he is going to take the news. Why the hell would Dad do this on his wedding day?" (Tony)
"Please watch your language. You know Kenaz repeats everything we say. Now let's get back inside." (Antoinette)
"It's all going to be okay. We just have to make it through the reception and then we will piece this puzzle together. Are you going to be okay?" (Antoinette)
"Yes, but when I see my father, you may want to stay close by to make sure I don't cause him bodily harm." (Tony)
"I got your back, honey." (Anoinette)
After their intimate moment, they head back inside, hoping that Freeman hadn't made an entrance yet.
