00 in the morning?

Sure, I thought, maybe once in a while

there'd be a small piece of information.

Give me an edge on a business deal.


it was all a game for you.

If that's what you want to call it.

Yeah. That's what I want to call it.

You know, you're not a fool.

You weren't tricked into doing anything.

You got off on every bit of that

just as much as I did, and you know it.

I don't know.

Got into what?

You enjoyed doing what

I wanted you to do.

You liked it. You liked being mine.

Being yours?


You remember that weekend?

We went away and we made up

a little game where'd you be my slave.

Say the word slave again.





I think you liked doing

what I wanted you to do,

and you got off on it.

I was doing a bunch of drugs.

I didn't feel much. I was numb.

That's a bad excuse.

All right. I felt this much.

The truth is you didn't give a shit.

You could barely get it up.


you'd get hard when you told me

what we are going to do,

but less when we actually did it.

Can't you take that later?


You know how much I miss you?

For the wrong reasons.

You shouldn't insist.

You just don't want to give in, that's all.

I don't want to end up like we were.

It's so hard to get out of it.

So you got out of it?

I don't think about you anymore.

I think about you less.

Anyway, I've got a new job now,

so there's no time for that.

Okay. You've got a job. Doing what?

Do you remember Lester and Sue Wang?

We had dinner with them

a couple times, right?

Yeah, I work with them.

They bought contemporary furniture

from Kwantung.

Whatever happened to that

science-fiction website you had?

That was so dumb.

It was not dumb. It was good.

What was the name of that

character you invented?
