Halloran: Umm, no.
Me: But, see, this is the scene I want to write.
Halloran: But that's not what I want to do.
Me: *sigh* Okay. But. This? Is what I want to write.
Halloran: Yeah, I know. But that's not how I react to that.
Me: *frustrated "eh!"*
Halloran: I realize that you want to establish a relationship between me and Tyka here. But this thing you want to write is not how it happens. This is just not how I deal with things. Kieran, yeah. My kiri, sometimes, yeah. Not me.
Me: ...but I wanna.
Halloran: But you want to be honest more than you want to write that.
Me: *sigh* ...yeah.
Halloran: Go to bed now. We can work on this tomorrow.
Me: ...okay. *suspicious look* Hey. Why do you get to tell me what to do?
Halloran: Because you love me. And there is a lot of your Adam in me, you know.
Me: Hmph. 'k. ...g'night.
Halloran: G'night. And don't forget to eat breakfast in the morning.
