Are you strong enough?

For what?

For me.

You're serious?

Never more.

Do you need me to be strong for you?

I need you to be strong for you . . . for me.

Could you be any more cryptic?

Would you like me to be?

exasperated sigh

Why?

Why what?

Why do you need me to be strong for you?

and myself.

Love hurts.

Are you in love?

Yes.

And it hurts you?

Sometimes.

The one you love should ease that hurt.

He can't ease what he doesn't know.

He?

Yes. He.

Does he love you back?

I don't know.

And that's why it hurts?

Sometimes.

I understand.

Do you?

Yes.

How can you?

I've loved too.

pause

I love now.

And it hurts?

Yes.

I understand.

silence

Perhaps he loves you too.

Perhaps.

Have you told him you love him?

Not directly, no.

But indirectly?

Yes.

And if he indirectly told you back? Would it hurt less?

It might.

Methos.

Yes?

I love you.

I love you too, Duncan.
