Know this may seem out of the blue, but it's something I need to ask.




Do you reckon I treat you and and my family like you're inconsequential?

...does this question have to do with our- last IO exchange?


I don't think the answer is that simple, Mike. For anyone.

Someone made an observation is all. Probably thought they were being funny but I'm having a difficult time seeing the humour in it.



You don't have to mince words, Padma. Go on. What you're meaning to say as nicely as possible is yes.

Doesn't really sound like something one would joke about.


I think you have the tendency to- overlook things. For example, you should tell your mum what's happened to you. I know you're trying to protect her- but you're her first born, Mike, and I'd be quick to wager she'd rather know what's going on with you- good news or not- than be left entirely in the dark.

If you knew who said it, you might change your mind about that.


And worry her over something that's over and done with and she can't ruddy change? No. No sodding way. There's'n't a point. What good could come of it?

Who said it then?


You know, worrying's not always that bad, Mike. At least it means she's active in your life.

Millicent.


I'm not going to make her cry, Padma. I can't bloody do that to her.

...you expect me to believe that Millicent Bulstride is capable of joking?


Have you ever considered that you can't keep it secret from her forever?

We've had the odd joke on occasion. Made several the other night even. Reckon that's why she was having me on.


I've said I'll tell her, in months, years, mayhaps. Just see no rhyme nor reason in doing it now.

Does she usually intend to rile you up when she jokes with you?


I see. And I suppose you don't think she'll be hurt by that lapse in time.

When doesn't she?


It'll be different.

It's the first I've heard about it.

Different how?

What do you want from me? Nothing's ever good enough anymore.

You've asked my opinion but you don't agree with it. Do you want me to say you don't take us for granted?

You're good enough. Mike.

If it's the truth. All I want is an honest, uncensored answer.


Wish I had half the conviction you do to agree.

Somtetimes. Sometimes I think you do.

There. Wasn't so ruddy hard now, was it?

I don't know. Hadn't thought it that far through yet.

I'm proud of you, you know. It takes a special sort of strength, to be able to look inward so critically.

Don't go singing from the pulpit yet, Padma. I never said I agreed. I only wanted an answer.
