Haven't you mentioned before that you hated him?

...Yes.

So, why the sudden change?

Things change. People change.

You've also mentioned that people don't change. Ever.

Perhaps I lied. Or maybe my opinions changed, too.

...

What?

Are you sure this isn't about something else?

Like what?

Like about what happened with your mo--

No! I mean, no. It's not about that at all. Look, is it possible to arrange a visit with him or not.

It is, but...I'm not sure if it will benefit you not not. He's been in the hospital for sometime, now. Even if I could arrange for you to see him, it's not as though you can stay--

I don't care. I need to see him, even if it's just once. Please, even if he's dying, I need him to know...

To know what?

...That I love him?

Was that a question or your answer?

Look, can you just see what you can do?

...Alright, Tanya, I'll try to make some kind of arrangement.

Thanks.

Looks like our time is up. Go up to the front desk. I'll see you next week.

Thanks, bye.

...

I hate counselors.
