I wondered if your name has anything to do with R. D. Laing. Oh, it couldn’t, could it?

Lain

R.D. Laing?

Toko

It’s a person’s name. An English psychiatrist. He was an unusual person. The titles of some of his books are very interesting. One of them is: “I Love, Love, Really Love.”

Lain

“I Love, Love, Really Love”?

Toko

I read it when I was in college and I don’t remember much of it, but it’s about two lovers—a man and a woman—and the woman asks the man if he loves her.

Lain

And?

Toko

Well of course, the man replies that he loves her. But the woman isn't satisfied, and asks more and more questions.

Lain

I don’t understand.

Toko

OK. Let’s see. Do you like me, Lain?

Lain

Yes, I do.

Toko

More than your dad? More than your mom?

Lain

Yes.

Toko

That makes me happy. Do you mean it?

Lain

Yes I do.

Toko

Are you happy when you’re here?

Lain

I don’t really understand, but I probably am.

Toko

Do you like talking to me?

Lain

Yes.

Toko

What do you like about me?

Lain

You’re kind and you listen to me.

Toko

Which do you like more? That I’m kind, or that I listen?

Lain

Which?

Toko

Yes, which?

Lain

I like you because you’re kind.

Toko

How am I kind to you?

Lain

You don’t get angry and you’re polite.

Toko

But there are lots of people besides me who don’t get angry at you. There are lots of people who are polite to you. Aren’t there? Do you really like me?

Lain

I don’t really know. Do I have to think about all this stuff? Let’s stop this. I feel like I might start to not like you.
