The Salesman: She shivers in the wind like the last leaf on a dying tree. I let her hear my footsteps, she only goes stiff for a moment.

The Salesman: Care for a smoke?

The Customer: Sure, I'll take one. Are you as bored by that crowd as I am?

The Salesman: I didn't come here for the party, I came here for you. I've watched you for days, you're everything a man could ever want. It's not just your face, your figure, your voice. It's your eyes, all the things I see in your eyes.

The Customer: What is it you see in my eyes?

The Salesman: I see a crazy calm. You're sick of running, you're ready to face what you have to face but you don't want to face it alone.

The Customer: No, I don't want to face it alone.

The Salesman: The wind rises electric. She's soft and warm and almost weightless. Her perfume with sweet promise that brings tears to my eyes. I tell her that everything will be alright. That I'll save her from whatever she's scared of and take her far far away. I tell her I love her. *gunshot* The silencer makes a whisper of the gunshot. I hold her close until she's gone. I'll never know what she was running from... I'll cash her check in the morning.
