A: That's what it was, and you imagined I had come there on purpose to save you. Yes?
B: You imagined that! Save you!
A: Save you from what? But perhaps I am worse than you myself.
B: Why didn't you throw it in my teeth when I was giving you that sermon? Power, power was what I wanted then, sport was what I wanted, I wanted to wring out your tears, your humiliation, your hysteria – that was what I wanted then!
A: Of course, I couldn't keep it up then, because I am a wretched creature, I was frightened, and, the devil knows why, gave you my address in my folly.
B: Afterwards, before I got home, I was cursing and swearing at you because of that address, I hated you already because of the lies I had told you. Because I only like playing with words, only dreaming, but, do you know, what I really want is that you should all go to hell. That is what I want.
A: I want peace
