Re: Call: Alexander/Eloise
What did I give him, Alexander? A character. I gave him a role, and I expected him to love it. And then, once he did, I expected him to love me, and it was not at all the same. [A knowing little sound.] Mother believed you'd be over that by now. How is Alexander? she asks me, as if you've a disease that you'll be cured of at any moment with none the wiser. [A hiss as the cigarette stubs out.] I sold the house. I'm living at a store called Tomes. It's off the strip, and you can't miss it. [And a smile.] Still asking for that, are you? Tell me, do you beg Chloe for the same?
