Double Indemnity - James M. Cain

"My you sound scared.

"Plenty. They know more than you´d think."

"Then it´s really serious?"

"Maybe not, but we´ve got to be careful."

"Then maybe I´d better not sue."

"You´ve got to sue. If you don´t sue, the we are sunk."

"Oh. Oh. Yes, I can see that."

"All right. Do you still love me?"

"You know I do."

"Do you think of me? All the time?"

"All the time."

"Is there anything else?"

"Not that I know of. Is that all with you?"

"I think so."

"You better hang up. Somebody might come in on me."

"You sound as though you want to get rid of me."

"Just common sense."

"All right. How long is this all going to take?"

"I don´t know. Maybe quite some time."

"I´m dying to see you."

"Me too. But we´ve got to be careful."

"Well then ... good-bye."

"Good-bye."

 

I hung up. I loved her like a rabbit loves a rattlesnake.

 

Urgh ... these people.
