Justin, wasn't financially secure and suffered from depression. Monica, was just getting over losing her home due being involved with a scam artist mortgage broker. In a troubled economy she could only find part-time work. Justin lived with his mother and his son while Monica lived with family. To say, they had some serious financial issues to be thinking about getting married; would have been an understatement. To help the financial restraints Justin took on a second job which left him with very little time to spend with the family. It was beginning to take a toll on him. Justin started drinking more and more and heavier and heavier.
Newly engaged and ready to have a great time Justin and Monica headed to the train station in Justin's manual BMW M3. But, not before Justin downed some Blue Moon beer and grabbed a bottle of Moet. Monica also made sure not to leave without her iPod. The ride into the City was a little over an hour.
On the train ride, Justin was getting very loud and rowdy towards Monica. It had become very apparent that he was inebriated. Monica was embarrassed as she put the earphones of her iPod in her ears. Only problem was that she did it while Justin was talking to her. He had asked her for a kiss and she refused. Justin didn't like that and demanded that Monica take out the earpieces. She would take out one but refused to take out both. So, Justin pulled the remaining headphone out of her ear and called her an ungrateful bitch. Not being a fan of confrontation Monica moved to another seat. Justin proceeded to follow her and said, "After all the money I've spent on you, you're not leaving me."
He then, continued to repeatedly call her a bitch. The train had approached Penn Station and Monica was ready to run as far away from him she could. Once the doors opened she was gone. She ended up at a Pizzeria to get a slice. When in walked Justin with roses in one hand and the bottle of Moet in the other.
"Baby, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to act that way towards you. I'm just tired and stressed from working these two jobs and dealing with my baby moms. When you wouldn't kiss me I felt unappreciated. I'm sorry. I promise I won't act like that again. Let me get some cups so we can toast to our engagement then get White Boy Wasted."
Feeling ambivalent about everything Monica just nodded her head and smiled.
