beautiful dialogues

by chaotarroo

DAVID
You know what I’m trying to say.
I want you to like me for who I
am, not just what I can do for
you.

JENNY
But that is who you are. I’ve
never met anyone like you. Action
is character, our English teacher
says.

DAVID
What does that mean?

JENNY
I think it means that if we never
did anything, we wouldn’t be
anybody. And I never did anything
before I met you. And sometimes I
think no-one’s ever done anything
in this stupid country, apart
from you.

You get that rush of brilliance when you read them and think, “I can write this. Maybe.”
