*he glances at Diego, then addresses Mimi*

I'm not here for a "little reason" either, Mimi. I tried to kill a girl. She was just a teenager, someone my brother was infatuated with. She flirted with him but didn't understand or return his feelings, she was just having fun.
She played a joke on my brother that put him a coma. Probably for the rest of his life.
She didn't understand he wasn't coming back to the circus. She didn't care.

I wanted her to understand what she'd done, and I wanted her to die. I tried to make it happen. But she couldn't understand. She didn't die. My father did.

Love is something that demands respect. It's a tremendously powerful thing. It changes people. What you're talking about is flirting, dating, having fun. It isn't love.

So enjoy yourself, Mimi. But be honest about it.

*Her eyes widen and her mouth drops finally hearing Acro's story. She knew he'd been arrested for murder, but had never heard the story as to why. It's hard for her to wrap her head around, but for now she realizes she's goofed big time.*

Y...Yeah. You're right. I'm sorry.

[aaggh been at work all day]

*After Mimi's comment about liking someone, he checks his hair, runs his tongue over his teeth, and finds himself glancing at his gloves-- yep, fingerless. He doesn't remember them ever chatting about bikes... but maybe she was just mistaken. Quite the smug grin crosses his features, but he directs his comment towards Diego.*

Yeah, we're all here for screwing up. But that doesn't mean we're not capable of compassion, does it? Sorry if you think otherwise, but some of us can be a bit more honest now that the gig's up and we're stuck here with time to think.

Are you paying attention to anything other than your hair over there, beautiful?

If you recall, I wasn't naming any names.

If you believe one of my remarks is aimed at you, maybe that says more about you than it does about me. I don't remember saying that any particular person lacked compassion. I didn't care for the remark, so I objected.

*he smirks in response*

Aaand that's exactly what I just did. I wasn't naming names either. That was a perfectly general statement.

Though, for the record, I can be plenty compassionate.

*Still feeling rather awkward but not wanting to remain silent for the rest of the session, she jumps in with a playful response.*

Yeah, like, you should see him around us ladies. Or maybe I'm mixing up 'compassionate' with 'flirty'. *She smiles at Jacques.*
Diego Armando

*to Jacques* What I meant was that I never said no one in here had compassion. So if you weren't speaking for yourself, your comment was irrelevant.

*and to Mimi* Yes. You are confusing them.

*Diego rolls his eyes, but sadly, no one can see him do it.* I'd like to remind you, this is a conversation about love. Not ridiculous prison flirtations. Does anyone have anything relevant to say?

*Once he's said that, he turns to Acro and speaks in a lower voice.* You all right?

*It's like Mimi didn't even hear him, it's hard for him to understand. He empathizes with Diego's frustration.*

There's a big difference between "compassionate" and "flirty", Mimi. If you can't distinguish one from the other, maybe you shouldn't put yourself in situations where it matters.
I guess my point was lost on you - or maybe you just don't want to hear it. Or maybe you just don't care.

*He turns toward Diego, nods.* I'm okay, Diego. Thanks.

*She resists wincing again, biting her lower lip.* Like, I was kidding, Mr. Ken. I heard you just fine, okay? Like, I just don't think love has to be so super serious all the time. That takes the fun out of it if you ask me. Crushes and stuff are still love, even if they're not, like, always as strong as an actual relationship. Like, you can crush on somebody and end up loving them a lot, you know?

But whatever, guess I'm the only one here who thinks that... *Beginning to feel annoyed and ganged up on, she leans back in her chair, crossing her arms and staring at a distant corner of the yard. This is a major drag--she wonders how much longer they're going to be forced to sit out here in this heat.*

*Lauren's been mostly sitting back listening, but when she sees Mimi get irritated she squirms in her chair.*

*to herself* Come on, Lauren, you're the moderator! Take control!

*clears her throat* I think Mimi's right. Love can come in different...levels. Right? You can love someone, but love someone else more, and then...meet someone else you love even more, right?

*His tone softens as he speaks to Lauren.* Love's a funny thing. Everyone has their own ideas about what it's like, and that's fine.

I myself don't believe in love at first sight. It's true, feelings grow and change, and infatuation could become love, in time. When we're young, we might think we're in love right away, but with maturity comes the ability to tell the difference.

I've been in love, and I'll never love someone more. Differently, maybe. More, no. Real love isn't something that's measured out, like spoonfuls of coffee.

That's an awful lot of love you've got to give there, Lauren!

*he regards the circle-- namely, Diego* I'd agree with the ladies, and the point you just made on this one. I mean. Love's gotta start somewhere, right? Who knows what a little "ridiculous flirting" can lead to?

*he turns a bit more towards Lauren, and gives her a little wink*

*He lets Mimi finish, nods in Diego's direction, ignores Jacques and Lauren's flirtation. He unfolds his arms.*

You're right Mimi, love doesn't have to be serious from the start. I think I wish that people remembered that even when they're having fun, someone could get hurt. People should be more careful with each other.

I don't think that's too serious a thing to ask.
