Mina came out and saw Larry in tears.
Mina: You Ok Larry?
Mina kneeled down and put her hands on his shoulders.
Mina: Larry what's wrong?
Larry couldn't take it and began sobbing.
Mina: Aww Larry-Boy!
Mina gave a sobbing Larry a big hug. She kissed his cheek 3 times before leaning towards his ear.
Mina: What's the matter Larry?
Larry (voice breaking up): Mina, I missed you so much. *sniffs hard* 9 years ago, my parents died the same day you left Atlanta for New Orleans. Though I was with the Lone Wolves, I was really scared. Without you, I couldn't sleep, *sniffs hard* and even if I did, I'd have traumatizing nightmares about my Parents' death.
Mina (whispering): Aww you poor kid. I'm so sorry you had to go through all this trauma.
Larry (voice breaking up): And Without my parents, I was all by myself. I thought nobody was going to take care of me afterwards. I thought I was going to be alone *sniffs hard* forever.
He continued sobbing as Mina continued to console him.
Mina (whispering): Shhh. It's ok. It's ok. *beat* Hey.
Mina stopped hugging him and stared at him lovingly, wiping his tears off his eyes and rubbing his cheek.
Mina: I'll take care of you Larry. I don't want you to go through the trauma anymore. I will always take care of you for the rest of your life. Always.
She kissed his cheek twice before continuing to stare at him lovingly, arms wrapped around his neck.
Mina: Can I tell you something?
Larry (voice breaking up): What is it?
Mina: You are the sweetest person I have ever met in my whole life. Back when we were kids I liked you as a friend, but seeing you now, I like you more than a friend. No matter where you are Larry, I'll be right at your side. And remember this: *leans toward his ear, whispering* you will always be my Larry-Boy and you will always be in my heart.
Larry sniffed harder as she kissed his cheek.
Larry (voice breaking up): Can I be your boyfriend Mina?
Mina: Yes you can Larry-Boy.
More tears started to stream down Larry's face.
Larry (voice breaking up): Oh Mina. I love you!
Mina: I love you too. Come here.
Mina kissed a tearful Larry on the lips for 10 seconds before continuing to hug and console him.
