Character aesthetics 4/?: Gabriel Boutin
‘You’re my friend, Gabriel. My best, my only friend. But…’
He turns to me. “I’ll stay with you always; go where you go always. I don’t want to be anywhere else. I couldn’t stand to be anywhere else. /../ ’
I turn to face him and see how angry he looks. I say, ‘Thank you.’ I think it’s the first time I’ve thanked Gabriel for anything but I know that he doesn’t want my thanks; he doesn’t want any of it.
