Yes, I know he's here. He's talking to me.

Can't you see he's talking to me?

Who are you talking to?

The king of the elfin realm.

The all-knowing little one.

We're having Spam for lunch.

Do you like Spam?

[Smacking lips] I like mine with raisins.

Um, you are Weldon Parish?

The writer?


They say I am.

Were you looking for someone else?

Yes, I think I was.

[Weldon giggling]

[Weldon smacking lips]

Okay, okay.

Hold on a second.

Did you find him?

Yes, I found him.

What happened to him?

No one really knows.

His mind just broke.

That's why everybody protects him?


It's just such a waste.

I'm gonna check out

in the morning, if that's okay.


[People chattering]

He just came in.

No, he thinks you're completely crazy, Weldon.

He's leaving tomorrow, okay? Ciao, ciao.

[Oboe music playing]

[Birds chirping]

That was a pretty elaborate ploy

to get me to go away, don't you think?

Apparently it wasn't elaborate enough.

- Mr. Parish, I came a long way to see you.

- I didn't ask you to.

See ya.

Do you know what "go away" means?

All I'm asking for is a few minutes of your time.


You're not going to go away, are you?

Uh, I'm sorry to be so persistent...

but nobody ever got anywhere

by taking no for an answer, right?

All right, make your pitch.

As I said before,

I'm with Pearce Learner Publishing...

a place where we pride ourselves

on being able to work with creative individuals.

We believe in bringing

the writer's vision to the page.

And as a writer myself,

I understand how important that is.

What do you write?

Well, I'm actually still working

on my first novel.

And, I don't even know if it's any good,

but I have always dreamed of being a writer.

And being a writer,
