Beating
Beats
It beats.
What beats?
My heart beats.
Why?
Why not?
Why?
It beats to keep me alive.
How come?
If not, I die.
Why?

9:34
It's just the way life is.
Oh.
Yeah
Throb
Throbbing
Throbs
Throbbed
It throbs.
What throbs?
My heart throbs.
Why?
Because it hurts.
Why?

9:35
Because he hurt me.
Who?
LDB.
Who's LDB?
That's what I call him.
Who?
My ex-boyfriend.
And he hurt you?
Yes.
Why?
I don't know why.
You don't?
No. And I wish I did.

9:36
It's obsession.
What's obsession?
How I feel for him.
You're obsessed over him?
I wouldn't call it that.
But you just did!
I did?
Yes, you did!

9:37
Why does he hurt you?
He doesn't know he does.
He doesn't?
No.
Why don't you tell him?
Tell him? I've already told him.
? And he still says no?
Correct.
Why?
His reason: I'd never have a chance.

9:38
Do you think you'd have a chance?
If he'd let me have one, then… well, I'd have one.
Why do you think he won't give you a second chance?
Probably because I blew the first.

9:39

How'd you blow it?
I broke it off with him.
How'd he take it?
Hard.
Why'd you do it?
Someone told me he was cheating on me.
Was he?
No.
And that doesn't make you feel better how?
I cheat with him on his other girlfriends.

9:40

So how do I know he really, truly didn't cheat on me?
You don't.
Yeah, and that sucks.
You just have to trust him.
I do?
Yes.
Why?
Because.
Because why?
I thought you loved him?
I do!
Love doesn't need a reason.

What?

9:41

You're right, that's it! Love doesn't need a reason.
Told you I'm always right.
Not always.
Well, mostly, then.
Yes, mostly.
So, what you going to do about it?

9:42
Well, I've already told him.
Yes, yes…?
Maybe I'll let him read this.
Yes, yes…?
I don't want to bug him.
No, no…?
That'd be a bad idea.
Yes, yes…?
So… what do I do?

9:43
It hurts.
What hurts?
Not knowing what to do.
That hurts? How?
I don't know. It just does.
Well, I don't know what to say.
Neither to I.
Just deal with it then.
Well, I'm trying.
How?
I'm writing, aren't I?
Yes. And that helps how?
I don't know. It just does.
Well, that's good, I guess.

9:44
So, how long is this going to go on?
Oh, I don't know. Not much further.
I love you.
And I love him.
