Forgive? I cannot afford to forgive. I am merely being selfish. You tell me of your suffering, of your desire for your drug, and I say the one thing I know will trap you, and I know I have just bound you as surely as with iron chains and anchoring you to that chair. You can no more leave me than you could take my life.
