(H doesn’t speak, just sits and stares dejectedly: at me, at nothing, at his hands. After about five minutes I decide to speak, my voice neutral.)
Me: You struck me. Do you recall?
H: (on the edge of hearing) …yes.
Me: I have never known you to do such a thing – I didn’t think it was in your character. So why?
H: (Miserably) Aaa… I have never had as much to lose as I have in you. Aaa my action was unforgivable. I – it came from… fear of losing what I have. Aaaa… I can barely face myself in the glass to shave… I should never have struck you. But I would again if it kept you safe. … I don’t know what sort of monster that makes me…
Me: (sighing, annoyed) Not a very monstrous one, all in all. I’d probably hit someone too if I panicked when I thought they might do something that would kill them and my petty violence would save them. … But you need to have more faith in me.
H: I am sorry, darlin’.
Me: H…? Are you well?
H: Are you?
Me: Pretty sure I still just have a shitty cold and not a death virus.
H: ……… you terrify me.
Me: How the hell?
H: Aaaaa so little concern for your own skin.
Me: If I die I’ll end up I the Stormlands – why should I be bothered by that?
H: Those you leave behind…
Me: Everyone leaves at least one person behind – there’s no escaping that.
H: aaa… … Dying hurts. Don’t – don’t chase it…
Me: I’m not, I promise. Either I have a rubbish cold or COVID19. I either cough pathetically for a week or two or I wash up on the Distant Shore. Hopefully on your doorstep…
H: Aaaaa – no… darlin’…
Me: Would it be so terrible if I did?
H: I want – aaa – I – aa – I want to protect you. Even if I can never hold you in my arms.
