What are you doing in the closet?
In the closet?
Yes. It’s too loud. It’s just too loud.
But we’re the only ones here.
Yes, but it’s just too loud. I can see what you’re thinking.
See what I’m thinking?
You want me to be … bigger. You want me to be more. I see it. I can only be me.
You are mistaken. I want you to be you too.
But I’m not enough.
No, you’re not. … You’re everything. You’re absolutely everything to me. And I promise you … when I look at you I’m not thinking you should be bigger. I’m thinking about how there was a time I thought I loved without worrying … but I was wrong. I love you so much … and when it’s real love … there’s always worrying. That’s the truth. I look at you and how perfect you are … and I worry that something may hurt you. But now …right now I am thinking that we should go for ice cream. We should get ice cream and visit the harbour, get back and order in … and talk. Because what you feel matters … what you have to say matters. So please come out of the closet and I promise to close my eyes and listen when we get back.
Yes. As much Rocky Road as you want.
On a cone?
A waffle cone dipped in chocolate. Well?
Tons of sprinkles.
