Celesta responds, saying, "We can't. You carry your burden and you do your part. And I'm carrying my burden, and I swear I'm doing my part. I'm doing my part as fast as I can. It's good to know that I'm telling you and that you told me because then it's not my work anymore. It's your work. And I can go on with my life. Oh, God, I hope so."
Why did Celesta want to confront this painful period in her life? What did she hope to gain from it? "I wanted to break the bond. I mean, I say it even after we've done it, you know. I sat in there [thinking] 'Am I friends with him? What is that? Why did I sit and talk to him so long,'" she asks herself. "I felt a lot of shame that I was so nice to him. But the truth is there was a bond and I wanted to break it. I think that's why I had to go and confront him. I wanted to find out, why do I still feel that affection? That's absurd, but I do. And so I had to go meet him face to face and go, 'Okay, I know who you are now and I don't feel this way about you anymore.'"
