I'm not too sure if I should cut this scene. Basically it consists of my novel's MC going to a meeting with a merchant and finding out that the guard ascorting said merchant is an ex-lover of her's. The two have a quick, awkward conversation before going their seperate ways. I wrote the scene to reveal the fact that the MC, firstly, is gay, and secondly has trouble with commitment/settling down which is a relatively large part of her character as she struggles to stick to anything, places, people etc. for more than a few months. But now I'm not too sure if I went about it in the right way as it, in my opinion, makes the MC (who is revealed to have cheated on guard) seem sleazy. The guard herself doesn't play a real role in the story which, again, makes me question the scene's point. Should I cut it?
