01/14/2005 Bianca Tells Maggie She Loves Her

"After getting tired of begging to be let back into her own apartment, Maggie goes to see Bianca. She tells Bianca that thanks to her, her relationship with Jonathan is over. She says that Bianca pulled a "Cambias power play" and made Jonathan feel worthless and stupid by asking him to come over and practically beg for his job. Bianca says she asked Jonathan to come over to get the scoop on her bruise. Jonathan's story didn't match up to Maggie's, she says, which only confirms he hit her. Bianca says she hates that Jonathan hit her, but that he could do it again. "It won't happen again!" Maggie screams, and Bianca realizes she was right. Bianca tells her she can't go back to him and offers for Maggie to stay with her. Maggie says that Jonathan is right about Bianca-she is just a toy to her who means nothing. Bianca is shocked that he spoke about their friendship that way. When Anita drops by, she sees that her timing is off and offers to leave. Maggie asks her to stay and bites at her for telling Bianca about the bruise. She grabs a stack of pamphlets from Anita's hand. The pamphlets are information about battered woman. Bianca tells her that she asked Anita to bring the information over because Anita has had experience dealing with these types of situations. "Oh, so now I am a situation?" Maggie asks. Maggie continues to get defensive and even calls Bianca a man-hater who thinks that Jonathan will hurt her the same way Michael Cambias did. Bianca says that she doesn't hate all men, but certainly doubts Jonathan and is scared of him. Maggie begins reading off signs of abuse from the pamphlet, one which includes being isolated from friends or family. When Bianca asks Maggie if Jonathan wants her to stay away from her friends, Maggie denies it and says that he loves her. Anita quietly slips out. Bianca begs Maggie to stay and says that she loves her.
