"I'm leaving now."

"Don't."

"I've got my shoes on."

"So?"

"I've got to go."

"Oh. But there's coffee."

"Only if you make some. And the door's already open."

"Oh."


"But you don't really have to, do you?"

"Have to what?"

"Go."

"Oh."


"Close your eyes for a minute."

"Why?"

"Trust me."

"You're leaving."

"That doesn't change a thing. Close them."


"Are you happy now?"

"Don't say a word."

"I've got to keep something open."

"Please?"


"You can open them now."

"My eyes?"

"Yes."

"But you're still going?"

"Yes."

"And if I open them, you won't even stay for coffee?"

"I might."


"Coffee's good. You're still buying HAG?"

"Yea. They sell it cheap."

"Oh."

"Another cup?"

"Yea."
