I don’t need to check.
You have to check now!
CHECK! CHECK IT NOW! IT COULD BE OPEN.
Fine. I checked.
I want to sleep.
Check it again. You didn’t check it right.
It was closed.
Check again NOW.
Fine I checked. Can I sleep now?
Just check one more time.
It’s two o’clock in the morning.
Fine…It’s closed. Sleep now.
I can’t. I have to go.
But it’s raining. You’ll get wet.
I’ll bring an umbrella.
Your feet will get wet! You can’t leave.
I have to leave. I will wear boots.
BUT your legs. They will get wet.
Fuck it’s raining. Fuck go home.
I am already outside.
Holy shit you’re wet. Turn back turn back.
No… I have to go.
Fuck this there is a puddle.
I’ll go around.
Legs are now wet. Turn the fuck back.
I can do this…
You’re only ten feet from your door. You can’t do this.
I can do it….
Go the fuck back. You can’t walk thirty fucking minutes in this.
I…. I… I’m going back.
