They came in the middle of the night. He shook his head, Motherfuckers...
Huram, the man in the suit interrupted. Gently.
Sorry... but you know what I mean? They came in the middle of the night and took us away. Nobody knew where we were going. Nobody knew what they wanted from us. Nobody knew why, you know? All we knew was that we had to go...
Looking back now, do you think you know why they took you?
You think I give a fuc-... I'm sorry... you think I care about what they were thinking? You think I have time for that? I'm still trying to figure out what's going on with me! I could give a damn about what they were thinking when they did what they did! Besides, you hear the explanations and all they do is make you feel like you need more explanations...
I'm sorry I asked you then. Continue: they came in the middle of the night and took you away. Then what happened?
Well you know what happened. You read about what happened every day- I don't have to go through all of that, do I?
Not if you don't want to, no.
Good, because even though it is the point, it's still besides the point. I mean, it's been a while since all of that happened, you know?
You're right. It has been a while.
But it sticks with me, man. Not like I go back to it on a daily basis but I can feel it on a subconscious level. I see it every time I look in the mirror and see traces of them in my face. I hear it every time one of them says something to me that just feels wrong. It pisses me off...
Not really. At least I don't think so. I mean they say I am but I don't believe it's anger. More like frustration- which is a type of anger, I guess. Or maybe it's what happens when anger can't come out. It just bubbles inside.
Till it explodes?
And then what? Relief?
Huram smiled, I imagine so. But in my situation I'm trying my best not to find out. Relief has its pluses: it feels good as hell, but it can also get you locked up.
You're right. But can you find relief without breaking the law?
Sure. Cats do it all of the time. Some even get paid doing it. But it's not as easy.
So: you are a man who is frustrated by constant reminders of the heinous crimes committed against you, crimes which you admit happened a long time ago. It that you Huram?
Not fully but I'll accept that for now.
But does that explain everything?
Of course it doesn't.
The man in the suit turned his head toward the voice,
Orianna, do you have
something to add...
