Confronting Arthur

Arthur (who we previously thought was Buck) sat on his raft and stared out at the open sea as Lola confronted him.

“So you really think it’s possible to create a machine that converts salt water into pure energy drink?”

“Yes.”

“You don’t need a partner to help you?”

“No”

“I bet you do, but you’re too proud to ask for help.”

“Yes.”

“Your last partner betrayed you by selling your secret recipes to [MAJOR ENERGY DRINK COMPANY], didn’t he?”

“Yes.”

“You wake up every night in a cold sweat, thinking about the day your energy drink start up collapsed, don’t you?”

“Yes.”

“You don’t say much, do you?”

“No.”

“In fact, you really just say yes or no, don’t you?”

“Yes.”

“It helps that I’m not asking any open ended questions, doesn’t it?”

“Yes.”

“You were born in Texas, weren’t you?

“Yes.”

“You are in fact a multi-billionaire, right? And the Fifty Shades series is loosely based on your life?”

Arthur didn’t think anyone else knew that.

“…Yes.”
