Ah, you’re right. But I’m really nice! Isn’t that a good enough excuse? I’m a nice guy!
Ah, well then I know where to find plenty of prostitutes… but I don’t wanna fly to Madrid just for that.
And you’re also scrawny, nerdy and puny. Well, I’m not sure if York has any… Though, there’s plenty of strippers around.
Does it really matter what I want, Luke Parker? You’ll do as you please after all. Really? And no, I wouldn’t jump from excitement. I don’t know, the last thing I would want someone I admire to think as I jump around excitedly is “wow this girl is mad” which I’m not. As for the autograph, if fate makes it so it happens, then it happens.
Of course you are, and I think I’ll just keep those things to myself…you know yourself, doesn’t matter what others say really.
That bit is true, although I may re-consider a suggestion. Well, aren’t you a tiny bit mad, anyway? Besides, I’m sure there’s actual individuals out there who do indeed deserve the loony title. But it’s intriguing and I’d like to know what others think.
But then people will wonder why you’re trying to grab the attention of someone you don’t know and think bad things, and I’m sure you don’t want that. That sounds like a Luke Parker thing to say, but I must admit even if I met my favourite author I’d treat him like any other. I can watch, and I can patch it up. That is one way to look at it, yes.
But you’re rich so you must be doing a good job and someone’s got to do the work! It doesn’t surprise me. I may have learned about Parker Industries but that doesn’t mean I don’t know a thing or two about Luke Parker himself.
Fair enough - I’ll stick to ignoring you, then. Is that good enough for you, Lena? Not that the gossip has ever stopped me before. I’m sorry … I’m finding that a little hard to believe. You wouldn’t jump from excitement? Rush over to ask for an autograph? Of course, I’m coming up with a new gadget that should add onto my millions. Oh? And what is it that you know of Luke Parker himself, then?
But you’re not Georgie’s father… And I think you’re forgetting I don’t date her anymore.
Well, I’ve been to New York. And does Madrid count because I went there once and saw like 5 prostitutes in one day… At least, I’m guess they were prostitutes.
I might as well be. No, I’m aware of that little detail. No excuse for not bullying you, though. Madrid? Yeah, I’d say so. Especially if the Spanish referred to them as “putas”.
But most people are nice to people who date their relatives. Well, when you put it like that I guess I should be grateful.
Well it depends what you consider a major city.
Most people? Ah, are you forgetting the fathers who meet their daughter’s boyfriend with a shotgun aimed at their head? Let’s say I’m the friendlier version of that… Hm… New York, Los Angeles, Miami.
But why would I need to act surprised? What if I just pretend like I don’t even notice you there? How would you respond to that? No, it makes me look like all the other girls and I know I’m not like them. This is true. I usually hear “well it’s a good thing I’m not a cat” which is why I said that extra bit. Awe, well that’s nice.
But that’s life, it’s work. You gotta do what you gotta do. But you have heating and blankets and a fireplace and sex to keep you warm till then. And warm food. Hm. Somehow, that doesn’t surprise me.
Then I’ll just have to grab your attention, won’t I? There’s nothing wrong with being like the other girls … in this situation, anyway. Oh? Well, now you’ve got two plot holes to watch out for, Tran. A satisfied cat. I’m aware, sadly. Gotta keep the company running and going. Until then, though, I have the previously mentioned activities … It shouldn’t surprise you, really.
So I’m supposed to pretend like I don’t know you, and you don’t know me? I feel hurt by that surprisingly. I must admit I’ve never actually heard that. Well, are you satisfied?
And why’s that? I’m sure you will, motivation can be found for you if you really need it and summer will be here soon and then we’ll be all warm. Have I? Well that goes to show you’ll never really know a person as well as you think you do. I’m full of surprises.
… Act surprised, and I’ll admit to knowing you. How about that? Will that make you feel better, love? Well, people tend to find loopholes … and that’s one of them. Of course I am. Flattered, even. Motivation? Yeah … tends to falter once I take a look at the piles of paperwork. Hopefully summer gets here quicker, I can’t stand the cold. Ah, of course. I’ve learned my lesson, however, I’ll probably end up doing so anyway.
Oh I’m sure everyone would be in shock and I’d just laugh because i’d be expecting your presence at all times. You know, they do say that curiosity killed the cat in which the cat is your mind and your thoughts and not an actual physical entity but I’d be lying if I said you weren’t…nice to look at.
Oh it sounds lovely! Well there you go, you got next Winter all planned out. You can plan how work will work out there and then yay for you on that. Sex Luke Parker, I meant sex but you knew that that’s what I meant and I bet you thought I’d go all shy and not say it but there, I did. Surprise!
I still expect you to act surprised, after all, it’s not everyday Luke Parker visits a classroom. Ah… Of course. But I reckon you’ve heard the continuation of that quote? What was it… Satisfaction brought it back? … And I am pleased with that answer. Of course, besides, winter is far away. I’m sure I’ll manage to catch up with the paperwork. … That was exactly it. Congratulations, Lena, you’ve managed to surprise me.
I think my professor would have a fit out of excitement and act like a child at xmas and I’m sure my classmates would be in awe of you, especially the females who think you’re hot by the way.
Oh where did you go? Did you have fun? And why not? Work not letting you move just yet? I guess you could settle for warm fires and blankets to keep you warm and…your other methods involving the human body.
Hm, I’m really considering this little trip to your school, then. Say, out of curiosity, do you happen to think the same as the, as you call them, females? I went to Australia. Lovely country, lovely weather … can’t say the same for the wild life. I did enjoy my time there—maybe I’ll go back to visit next Winter. “My other” methods … Not following, Tran. Please do elaborate.
