I think so.
Then we ought to see a lot of each other.
What have you been doing, Donald,
since I saw you last?

Nothing much. Mostly service routine.
A couple of years in India, after our smash-up.

I went back to England for a while.
Then I was assigned to a scientific expedition in Manchuria.

Sounds as if you had been rather lonesome, Doc.
I can't say I was very lonesome.
It was an active life,
full of interest and excitement.

I suppose you mean women.
It was difficult to find someone to take your place.
Did you try very hard?
Not particularly.
I didn't want to be hurt again.

Always a bit selfish, Doc.
Thinking of your own hurt.

I can't except your reproach,
I was the only one hurt.

You left me without a word.
Purely because I indulged in a woman's trick
to make you jealous.

I wanted to be certain that you loved me.
Instead I lost you.
I suffered quite a bit,
and I probably deserved it.

I was a fool to let you go out of my life.
