It’s Between Me and Him

Trust me,” Steve said. “If things get contentious, I’ve got your back.”

“Truthfully,” Liz replied, “it’s none of your business and you need to butt out.”

“But you know what an instigator he is,” Steve said. “We need to be able to outfox him, you know what I’m saying?”

“There’s no ‘we’ here, Steve,” Liz said. “This is a divorce proceeding with his and my lawyers and it’s between me and him. I’m not some innocent blushing bride, you know. I can hold my own against that narcissistic SOB I made the mistake of marrying.”

“Fine, Liz,” Steve said, “but don’t forget that I offered to be there for you. If things go south, it’s your funeral.”

“That’s a risk I’m willing to take on my own, Steve,” Liz said. “I know your heart’s in the right place, but I need to do this by myself.”
