Richard Rider Quotes: You Are Gonna Shoot Me He Says One Day

You Are Gonna Shoot Me," He Says. "One Day." He's Still Holding Lindsay's Hand, He's Looking Down At Where Their Fingers Are Wound Together And Not At Lindsay's Face, But His Voice Is Clear. "I Ain't Thick. I Know You'll Get Sick Of Me. You Can't Just Let Me Go, I Know Too Much, You'd Be Freaked Out Forever In Case I Snitched. You'll Get Proper Sick Of Me One Day, Not Just Annoyed, And Then You'll Shoot Me. It's Okay."
"I Won't Get Sick Of You," Lindsay Says. He Feels Numb And Far Away, As If Its Somebody Else Talking, And Almost Like He's Going To Throw Up, A Sort Of Lurch In His Stomach Like When You're At The Top Of The The Angel Tube Station Escalator And Somebody A Bit Too Eager To Get On The Train Shoves You From Behind.
"Yeah You Will. I'm Gonna Be With You Til I Die, Though. Least I Can Say That And Know Its True, How Many People Can Do That? Bit Romantic, Really. If You Squint, And Look At It Sideways.
