[Olivia and Grace meet at a work conference]

Grace: Hi Olivia – that was a really good talk. How are you? I was going to call you last week but it got busy – you know how it is!

Olivia: I am well and yes the talk was good. I am well.

Grace: that’s great – let’s have some tea and a gossip before the next lecture.

[Grace and Olivia pour tea and milk into cups and sit down in the corner of the conference room]

Grace: So…what new?

Olivia: Not much – just ticking along

Grace: Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

Olivia: I don’t know – feeling a little low these days

Grace: Really? I thought things had settled down? Did you talk?

Olivia: I wonder if I am being selfish staying in this relationship?

Grace: selfish?

Olivia: well he is not 100% happy and I can’t seem to be able to make him happy

Grace: what about you? Are you happy?

Olivia: well I am happy when he is happy…

Grace: that’s not really an answer. Are you happy in this relationship?

Olivia: well at the moment there things that are putting stress on us?

Grace: well that’s normal – life is not perfect

Olivia: but I don’t know what to do to make it better

Grace: hmm – do you like being with him , enjoy spending time with him?

Olivia: of course I do – that’s the best part, but I can’t say that the feeling is mutual.

Grace: hmm…what are you saying?

Olivia: I wonder if he is unhappy when he is with me

Grace: only one way to find out

Olivia: I’m scared

Grace: well – the truth will declare itself soon enough

Olivia: that’s what I am afraid of

Grace: you have to face life as it – speaking of which, back to work!

[Grace and Olivia place their empty teacups on the table and return to their seats]
