I: "I don't think I can stop."

"Maybe you just aren't trying hard enough."

"Not trying hard enough? He's gone! What's left to try for?"

"Everything."

"What do you think?"

"It's hideous."

"I knew you'd say that."

"Then why'd you ask?"

II: "I hate you."

"Do you?"

"No."

"It's because you're too weak."

"Just give me a chance."

"You had a chance."

"I know."

"So get out."

III: "Write a letter."

"He won't read it."

"Sure he will."

"How can you be so sure?"

"I miss you."

"Why does this keep happening?"

"Unforeseen circumstances beyond our control?"

"Is he gone?"

II: "Get out."

"You act like this is my fault."

"Please, don't make me say it again."

"You know you can't."


Prelude: "What if I say yes?"

"There will be consequences."

"If I say no?"

"Well, it would be fun to watch you try."
