I love you!
Denise lays her heart on the line to Kush. Will the pair reunite?
she hopes that now she has been honest, they can start again
The course of true love never did run smooth, as Mr Shakespeare once wrote, and that’s certainly been the case for Denise and Kush. One minute, they were at it like rabbits; the next thing you know, Dee wouldn’t give the buff stallholder the time of day. What Kush still doesn’t realise is that Denise didn’t suddenly go off him, but actually pushed him away so he wouldn’t find out about the desperate state of her finances – a tragic love story that the Bard would have been proud of. But could there be a way back for the lusty pair? Now that Patrick and Kim know the truth about what really happened to cashstrapped Denise, things are on the up for the struggling student. But while Denise is delighted to finally have some food in her belly, Kim is still very worried about her sister. And, when the two have a heartto-heart, she gives her some advice that prompts Denise to reach out to Kush and apologise for having dropped him like a hot potato.
‘Denise is fiercely independent and always wants to prove to everyone that she is a grafter
and can cope on her own. But in doing so, she has a tendency to shut people out, and Kim is aware of this more than most,’ says our Eastenders source.
‘Kim tries to encourage her to open up a little bit, and points out that she is denying herself a shot at happiness if she doesn’t let people in.’
With Kim’s words striking a chord, Denise sets out to salvage her relationship with Kush, and asks him out for a drink. Kush agrees, but the invitation goes down like a lead balloon with Carmel, who thinks her former best friend is only playing with her son’s feelings.
When they get to The Vic,
Denise takes a deep breath and tries to explain to Kush how she fell on hard times, was embarrassed about her situation and didn’t want anyone to know. And she goes on to apologise for breaking his heart and tells him she loves him.
‘It’s a big step for Denise,’ adds our source, ‘and she hopes that now she has been open and honest, they can start all over again.’
But will a wounded Kush take her back, or will he decide that Denise’s lack of trust in him is too much to forgive and forget?
