Holly comes in and Buzz comes over to talk to her. He was worried that since he brought up sex, she had been ignoring him. Holly tells him she hadn't been avoiding him. She is a big girl and she knows an inappropriate suggestion when she hears it. Buzz comments that she has came to his place of business now. She tells him she is there to meet Blake. Buzz thinks Holly has been dreaming about him and wanting him but she denies it. He asks her about the surprise party Ross is throwing for Blake. Holly tells him it has been postponed until Richard and Cassie can get back home. Blake comes in and Buzz walks away. She goes over to a table with Holly and shows her the new novel. Holly is so proud of her and Blake asks her why she keeps staring at Buzz. Holly tells her about Buzz bringing up sex and how she is sometime tempted but she thinks better of it. Holly changes the subject and asks Blake why she isn't happier that her book is out and the critics seem to love it. Blake tells her she is still worried about Buzz. She feels responsible for everything, especially Selena leaving and she knows Buzz is still mad at her. Holly figures out that Blake wants her to help her talk to Buzz. Buzz comes over and sees the book. Blake hands it to him and tells him she wants him to have it before they come out. Buzz tells her he doesn't want it. Buzz walks away and Blake follows. She tries to apologize and asks Buzz to give the book a chance; she thinks he may be surprised. Buzz tells her he knows the story, he lived it and he doesn't want to relive it again. He tells her that because of that book part of him was ripped away and he hates it. Buzz claims Selena shared her story and Blake exploited it and told all her secrets until the mob came after her and she had to flee, not to mention Selena was almost killed. Blake tells Buzz she knows he is hurt but she hopes he can read the book and maybe something good can come of the situation. He tells her again he will not read it and accuses her of doing it for money and notoriety. Holly defends Blake but Buzz doesn't want to hear it. He is yelling at her now telling her how she ruined his life and he has been reduced to nothing. Now he is left coming onto a cold bitter woman who doesn't want to feel. Buzz left the room. Blake tells Holly that she only wanted him to read it so he would understand how brave Selena was. When Buzz comes back through the room, Blake tries to get him to understand again. Buzz tells her she tricked Selena into divulging things and then used it all to bring terror into Selena and his lives. Holly and Blake go back to their table. Blake apologizes to Holly. She says she didn't know Buzz was still so angry. She thinks if he gave the book half a chance he would see how heroic Selena was. Holly tells Blake she will meet her at home; she wants to talk to Buzz. Blake apologizes for upsetting things between her and Buzz. She leaves. Holly asks Buzz where he gets off talking to Blake like that. He loves the truth yet he criticizes Blake for telling it. How can he judge a book he hasn't read? He says the only thing that book will give him is more pain. Holly says real life gave him pain and the book is fiction. Buzz tells Holly that Blake knew what she was doing was wrong. She kept after Selena and was desperate for a story ending in her wrecking his life. It is not art, it is selfishness in hardcover. Holly tells him that the only thing she thinks of when she thinks of having sex with him is repulsion. Holly says Buzz needs help.
