I shook my head.  “I’ve played along.”

“Bullshit.  You’ve demanded concessions and compromises from us every step along the way.”

He’s right.

“And I’ve made concessions and compromises.  I accepted it when you revealed your real power, I agreed we should capture Shadow Stalker for the one job.”

“Let’s call a duck a duck.  You agreed to capturing Shadow Stalker because you wanted revenge.”

What if I want to call a duck “ei and”?

I shook my head.  “No.  Remember when I first brought up the bullying?  I was pretty clear about how I didn’t want any of that.”

Oh yeah, that’s a good point.

“You said it, but that’s a long ways away from meaning it.”

“I say what I mean.”

Sometimes I’m not sure you know what you mean.
