When Maya first saw Justin, she almost couldn't handle it. He was in an isolated jail cell wearing a red jumpsuit with his face in his hands sobbing audibly.
Maya's escorting officer slid open the cell bars and let Maya enter. Justin looked up in surprise.
"Maya?" he asked. His eyes were red from crying. He stood up and ran over and gave her a huge hug.
"I'm here Justin," Maya said, tearing up herself.
"Why would you come? I thought for sure you would hate me," Justin explained. Maya frowned.
"Justin, I could never hate you. I love you, even when you mess up," Maya replied calmly. Justin nodded.
"Justin, why have you been taking drugs?" Maya asked. It was sudden, but she needed to get this conversation over with. She needed an explanation. Justin glanced at her, startled by the question.
"I found empty pill bottles in your night stand drawer," Maya interupted. Justin sighed. It was clear that he didn't want to talk about it, but he wasn't going to hide from Maya.
"I've just been so stressed out lately, Maya," Justin stated grimly. "All of this fame, it's messing with my head and it's like I don't know right from wrong anymore," Justin explained.
"But that's no reason to throw your life away, Justin," Maya countered. "You do know that those tiny little pills can make a huge difference in your life, don't you?" Maya asked. It was like a parent was scolding a kid for doing somethigng wrong. That's how this conversation felt to Maya.
"Justin, when you get out of this mess that you got yourself into, go see a therapist or somebody or anybody. I don't want to see you get hurt like all of those other pop stars," Maya sympathized. Justin nodded in agreement.
"Okay. I'd do anything for you," Justin muttered, pulling Maya into another hug.
"I love you," Maya whispered.
"I love you more," Justin whispered back, a tear from his eye dripping onto Maya's shoulder. They stood there in each other's arms for what seemed like an eternity. It was then that Maya realized that things can get better. It was then that she realized that people can change. It was then that she realized that Justin would be hers always and forever, as long as she believed in him.
