– Look into the mirror. What do you see?
– I see… an exceptional girl.
– Thank you. Next to her, what do you see?
– … I don’t know.
– You’re progressing.
– You think so?
– Of course, before you saw only s**t. Now, at least, you see nothing. You’ve cleaned up well. Now, you need to fill up the empty shell. You can’t leave it empty. Look hard, in front of you. Anything catch your eye in this handsome face?
– Not much.
– Look into your eyes. What do you see?
– … Kindness
– Yes, lots of it. What else?
– … They’re not bad-looking.
– Beauty, exactly. They’re beautiful. What else?
– … Maybe… A little gentleness?
– Yes lots. And love?
– Sure, lot of love. Too much, perhaps.
– If there’s too much, it has to come out. Say you love me.
– Pardon?
– You don’t love me?
– Yes, a lot… I mean… I feel a sort of affection, but it may be friendship…
– Do you love me or don’t you?
– From the very first day. The very first second.
– So say it.
– It’s hard to say.
– Do you know why? Because no one ever said it to you. Am I right? It’s hard to love yourself when no one reflects that… I love you André… See, you have received love. Now, you can give some in turn. Go on.
– I love you Angel-A, or whatever your name is.
– You are right. say it again without my name.
– I love you.
– That’s good. Now, look yourself in the eye, and say it.
– … I can’t
– Of course, you can. Look at your body, battered by the lack of love and trust. Don’t you see it deserves a little care? Don’t reject your wounded body. It has suffered in silence all this time. Tell your body how important it is, that it has its place. Give it what it deserves. – … … I love you André, I love you.
