>> Hey yourself.

>> Wow, it's kind of late. What if I'd been asleep? Or busy seducing your friends or something?

>> You've never slept well.
>> I knew you'd be up.
>> Can't be.
>> Aiden's somewhere behind me, and he's already all tied up in Oreo.
>> Ain't no one else at that place my 'friend' darling.
>> Just you.

>> That's going to take a lot of getting used to. You knowing more about me than I do.

>> (I'll survive, though.)

>> Now you're just being maudlin. Plenty of people like you. The redhaired chick seemed PLENTY friendly.

>> I'm guessing the whole 'bros before hos' thing hasn't been working out all that well for you, huh?

    >> People are friendly enough, sure.
    >> But I just ain't the friend having type.
    >> Nope. Been pretty shitty over here.
    >> We're heading back.
    >> Home.
    >> Shit. I should probably text Laura.
    >> That makes it even more fucked up.
    >> Her and Ro have always been close.

>> If you can make friends with an amnesiac (re-make friends?) surely you can make friends with anyone.

>> Okay, so humour me here, just while I try to get things straight.

>> 'Ro' is your complicated not-woman.

>> Aiden is your friend. The one she loves.

>> Laura is your daughter, who's close with your not-woman.

>> And instead of talking to any of them anymore, you're texting me. The chick who doesn't remember you, but you remember all too much of.

>> ...and I thought MY life was complicated.

    >> It's not that. It's me trusting people.
    >> I just don't.
    >> You though. I do. Know you're good for it.
    >> Yes, yes, and yes.
    >> Who am I supposed to be talking to?
    >> Laura. She was raised rough. And she sees things differently. It makes interactions with her hard sometimes.
    >> Aiden and I did talk, but that sure as shit didn't go well.
    >> And I told Ro what I had to tell her. That I loved her.
    >> It's been two days.
    >> Haven't heard from her since.

>> Well, you did kind of head straight to Atlantic City.

>> I mean, she still should have called or something, but both of you leaving? Together? I wouldn't know what the hell to do either.

>> You gonna talk to her when you get back?

    >> Never said I was the smartest man in the world darling.
    >> And I ain't blaming her or anything.
    >> She just, I sent her a text to let her know what was up, and I've gotten nothing back.
    >> I wish you could know me like I know you.
    >> It's so nice to know anyone though. Like this. More than just a couple years of my life.
    >> Shitty that I've got to trade it for not being remembered.
    >> I'm gonna leave her be.
    >> I told her she had to make a choice.
    >> And, well, I can't stop thinking about what you said last night.
    >> I love her. God knows I do. More than any person I ever have.
    >> Or ever will.
    >> But maybe loving her isn't the best thing to do.

>> know I'm sorry about that. The not remembering thing.

>> And, honest to God, James, if I can find the people who did this and make them fix me in the head, we can have a solid week of catching up. I swear.

>> But right now, I'm more worried about YOU and this...I don't even know what to call it.

>> I'm no specialist, James. It's not as if I can actually remember what it's like to love someone.

>> It's very easy for an empty person to tell you what to do, but maybe my advice isn't the best.

    >> No blame. It's just fucked up. Gain one thing. Loose another.
    >> You have any idea how much of my life I've spent looking for these fuckers?
    >> Almost as much as I have working for them.
    >> Don't know if I wanna waste anymore of what I got left on them.
    >> Chuck'll figure out your head.
    >> Now that he's back. He'll fix everything.
    >> You know what it's like to be loved, though.
    >> Empty ain't the right word, sunshine.
    >> Even with everything all locked up tight in your head, empty wouldn't be the word I'd use.
    >> I just gotta stop being such a pansy about all this mess.
    >> What'll happen will happen.
    >> And in the end it'll all even out.
    >> Always does. Always will.

>> ...hey, James?

>> If it doesn't work out with this woman, or with anything, and you leave.

>> Can I come?

    >> That a question you think you need to ask?
    >> I've found you again, Carol.
    >> After loosing you and myself.
    >> Ain't never gonna loose you again.

>> Just checking.

>> It's not as if I belong here, or anywhere really, but you're the next best thing I have to knowing who I am.

>> Guess you'll have to do the remembering for the both of us.

>> Also, no way am I letting anyone called 'Chuck' anywhere near my brain. That's probably similar to how all of this started in the first place.

    >> I guess that's another way we're alike.
    >> Neither of us really belong anywhere.
    >> But I'll always be here for you no matter what.
    >> Closer than I have been in the past few days too.
    >> We're gonna land in a few. You busy? I bought a stack of Bogart movies at some strip mall in Jersey.
    >> Thought we could watch them together.
    >> Got your presents, too.

>> I don't know, are you going to be as depressing in person as via text?

>> You need to warn me if you're gonna cry on me or whatever so I can bring kleenex.

>> I only have the one shirt and if you ruin it with your woman-tears, I'm stealing one of yours to make up for it.

    >> I save my woman tears for Oreo.
    >> Or Aiden when he's being really tender.
    >> You keep sassing me though, and I'll give your gifts to red.

>> All three of you sound crazy and I'm steering well clear of it.

>> And hey, no, gimme. I want my loot.

>> I imagine my rooms are more comfortable than army digs anyway, so come by. It'll be nice to talk to someone who doesn't just stare at me when I accidentally call you James.
