Will is at Horton Town Square. Marlena arrives.

Marlena: Will. I'm glad I found you. I'd like to talk to you, after that last thing you said.

Will: I don't think so.

Marlena: Why don't you just look at me for a second. You don't have to talk, not if you don't want to. But I can't believe you want to handle this all by yourself. I can't believe you don't want someone to help you and share your life with.

Will: I do. I'm tired of fighting what I know is true.

Marlena: Good for you.

Will: I'm gay. I said it and... You know, this time, I'm- no fixies- I'm not going to take it back. I'm gay.

Marlena: You told me you were gay, and the sky didn't fall and... you told me you were gay... and I still love you with all my heart.

They hug.

Will: Thank you.

Both: [chuckling]

Will: Listen, I'm so sorry. How I... I was so- I lost my temper with you earlier and I've been so difficult. And I- I'm fully aware of how supportive and patient you've been with me. And I want you to know how much that means to me and... how much I love you.

Marlena: I do know that. And you must never worry about apologizing to me. I'm just so glad you were finally able to admit your true feelings.

Will: Finally.

Marlena: Mm-hmm.

Will: I know. You must think I'm pretty lame, because, like, I couldn't even admit something that was obvious to you- so obvious to pretty much everybody.

Marlena: No. I think you're one of the bravest men I've ever known. And I am exquisitely proud of you.

Will and Marlena are eating at a table. Will is hogging the dessert.

Marlena: Pardon me, in the middle, if you don't mind.

Will: [mouth full] Excuse me.

[laughter]

Will: Can't believe I said those two words. I'm... [slurps] gay. I'm homosexual. I'm a- [slurps]

Marlena: Mmm, I think that's four words. But how do you feel, know that you've said it?

Will: Hungry. Just kidding. Relieved. So relieved. I'm mean, it's like I can't believe that just saying those two words makes such a big difference, you know, but it does. And-

Marlena: I'm so glad to hear you say that.

Will: What Sonny- Sonny told me, and it's true, it's like this huge weight has just been lifted from my shoulders.

Marlena: It is so good for me to see you finally feeling at ease with yourself.

Will: I wouldn't go so far as to say... "at ease"

Marlena: Why? Are you having some little doubts?

Will: No, no, no. I mean, I'm definitely gay. But, um, you know, I'm just worried about what that means. You know, I'm worried about my future a little bit.

Marlena: Well, sure. It's natural to be a little worried about your future no matter what.

Will: I know you said that it's going to work itself out, but... I don't know, I feel like I just gave up a couple of my hopes, you know, a couple of my dreams- several of my plans. I don't know, it's just like, you know, now what?

Will and Marlena are walking together through the square.

Marlena: You've taken a very big step today. I think we can save the decisions for the rest of your life until tomorrow.

Will: Yeah. I know it's gonna take a lot of time to figure things out.

Marlena: But, you know, remember that being gay does not mean you've got to give up on your dreams.

Will: I know.

Marlena: They may just take a little different shape than you're expecting, that's all. And we all have that happen to  ourselves.

Will: Yeah.

Marlena: Will... I'm curious... What got you to this today? Did you find somebody that interests you?

Will: No. No, lets not rush things, okay?

Marlena: Okay, okay.

Will: I'm not ready to date guys yet. I'm not- I don't know. I don't know think I'm ready to be that open yet.

Marlena: Is there anybody else you feel you can talk to?

Will: Well, Sonny, of course. But, um, I mean, he'll be okay because I think he already knows. You know, if he has a brain cell in his head he'll- I'm sure he knows.

Marlena: He'll be a very good friend for you, and somebody you can talk to.

Will: Yeah. I mean, I talk to him a lot already. I- I just don't want him- I don't want to turn him into, like, my gay-life coach or anything. Seriously.

Marlena: [laughs] Ahh! What about your other friends?

Will: Well, the ladies will be crushed.

Marlena: Of course.

Will: Of course. No, I think they'll be okay. Um, except for I'm a little worried about, uh, Gabi. Because I think she might feel betrayed. You know, I think, um, she'll think I purposely led her on and that I wasted her time.

Marlena: Wow. But, knowing Gabi, I think she'll understand that you were confused, and that you never meant to mislead her.

Will: I hope so.

Marlena: The big one- your parents. You thought about telling Sami and Lucas?

*

Will: You know, I don't think I should. I don't think I should come out to either of my parents.

Marlena: Well, they may surprise you.

Will: Mom's not gonna surprise me. She always makes everything a production starring herself...

Marlena: [laughs]

Will: Written by herself. Produced by herself.

Marlena: Yeah. All righty. What about your dad?

Will: I don't know. After our conversation earlier, I learned he has no idea. He's not gonna be thrilled.

Marlena: Hey, Will, don't sell him short.

Will: I don't want to. I mean, it's just that he didn't like Sonny and me messing around, because he was afraid about what other people were gonna think about me.

Marlena: Honey, no matter what you decide, please remember, your parents love you so much. Almost as much as I do.

Will: Yeah. I know. Thank you. I never could have gotten this far without you.

Marlena: I'm not sure that's true. You are such a strong young man. I'm so proud of you. And your road may be a little bumpy. It won't be easy all the time. But you are going to be happy. And no one deserves it more than you do.
