“You mean, if you knew me better, you’d force stuff on me like everyone else?
— It’s possible, I said. That’s how people live in the real world: forcing stuff on each other.
— You wouldn’t do that. I can tell. I’m an expert when it comes to forcing stuff and having stuff forced on you. You’re not the type. That’s why I can relax with you. Do you have any idea how many people there are in the world who like to force stuff on people and have stuff forced on them? Tons. And then they make a big fuss, like “I forced her. You forced me!” That’s what they like. But I don’t like it. I just do it because I have to.
— What kind of stuff do you force on people, or they force on you?”

Midori put an ice-cube in her mouth and sucked on it a while.

“Do you want to get to know me better? she asked.
— Yeah, kind of.”

  3. Hello!
    I just wanted to say that I really like the photographs you have on your website. They are very beautiful! Did you take them yourself? I’m quite interested in photography myself.
