[It's the sins and virtues plot! Imagine the utter joy of our beloved Prime Minister Monocle for having been blessed with so many wonderful virtues! He might even become a good person out of this.

And through this wonderful event, Monocle has found himself forced to compliment anyone who talks to him, instead of harping on about himself, like he usually does.]

What... what is this sheer madness...? I hope no one sees me like this...

[Come talk to him, if you want to feel good about yourself. :D]

You're... being nice about the place.

[That makes no sense. ...oh, well.]

Mmm. Fuzzy. Painkillers aren't usually this... nice.

...not usually on this many, though.

[Pulls him close.]

I'll keep an eye on you, Clive. I promise you...

[He hums a little and curls closer.]

I'm... not jealous of everyone else you're with. Right now. But that won't last, will it?

[He chuckles.]

No. By the end of the week you will be normal again.

Mmm, and then... you'll be mine again. I don't... share.

[Understatement of the century.]

[Smirks.]

I have realized this.

...mmm.

...you always... fuck other people though.

[This is really hard to explain while not breaking the "only talk nicely" thing, Clive.]

I can assure you that none of them are as close to me as you are.

[THAT'S NOT A LIE, AT LEAST.]

...that doesn't make it hurt less.

I'm... sorry.

...will you stop, though?

I... can't promise that.

Will you leave me if I don't?

I can't leave you.

[So what incentive are you giving me to stop, Clive?]

I know. And I'm sorry for that. But I will do my best to fix the damage that I've done to you.

[He's got nothing left to offer, honestly.]

...you keep doing more.

Need I remind you that we've been back together for such a short time. I intend to speak with your Layton and haven't slept with anyone during the time you've been back. Nor did I while you were with him.

Give me a chance.

[I think Monocle's talking rainbows and sunshines to everyone is kind of breaking now.]

[Good job, you two, you broke the DR.]

I can't not. It just... hurts.

But I haven't done anything to make it hurt yet.

Or are you so certain that I will?

You always have done before, even... though you knew it hurt.

...I just... I want to believe you, I do. But...

Because I don't say it directly, you can't?

And even if you did say it directly, I don't know if I'd be able to believe you.

Until you've seen me interact with everyone I could potentially betray you with? I'm sorry that you feel that's required...

It's not about seeing you interact with everyone. It's just... maybe I'll trust you eventually. For the moment, though... no.

Then I will try harder to gain your trust.

I don't deny that I have slept with others for political gain, but... there are other ways to go about that.

And... Luke...

[He's not quite sure what to say there.]

...if you mean the older one... he's gone. He has been for a little while.
