And that's exactIy why I Iove you.

apart, and be with me.

- Sure you can.

- Try!

- It's too Iate, Bruno.

- I can't!

We can't.

You have to!

Thank you.


- Remember the first time?

- What first time?

The first time we met.

I was so anxious.

- Why?

- To see if you came.

Who you were, and what you wanted.

- I was anxious about everything.

- You miss that?

- I'm stiII anxious.

- What about?

To see if you come home,

if you're there -

- who you are, what you want.

You're just curious

about yourseIf, Bruno.

Oh yes.

You Iove yourseIf.

You can't stop observing yourseIf

and sensing your reactions.

You're your own greatest fetish,

did you know that?

- I feeI a bit upset now.

- Don't.

I've aIways known

who you are, Bruno.

Who am I?

You're the man who Ioves so much,

you must destroy what you Iove -

- so it can be yours.

And who are you?

I'm the woman

wiIIing to be destroyed.

What do you want?

What do you want?

What is it you want?

I want, very sIowIy ...

... caIm as I've never been before -

- and with a poise

I've never had before -

- to make an incision

in your bosom.

And cut open

your perfect marbIe skin.

See it come apart -

- so that I with aII my Iove

can pIunge my way in.

And with an unquenchabIe hunger -

- I wiII put my mouth

to your beating ventricIes -

- and have the bIood fiII up my mouth.
