Mia and Emerald
E: Welcome, I'm Emerald. So you're the NKOTB then?
M: Have you got a problem with it?
E: Steady on!
M: I know you know.
E: U know that I know what?
M: About me, my condition
E: Hey babe, as far as I know, you're just an ordinary girl. Is something wrong?
M: Why ordinary? As far as U know I'm Lola, the showgirl with yellow feathers in her hair.
E: And a dress cut down to there! Nice!!
E: So, what's going on?
M: I'm working the rain game - doing nothing
E: How come?
M: Difficult to explain
E: Let me guess, Lola, a model between jobs?
M: Laughing even louder out loud
M: Thanks, I need it..
E: Cancer can be difficult to deal with
M: But you ... you've spoken to my mother?
E: No, I can feel your pain
M: Look, who are you?
E: I came online to talk to you
E: I'm the co-ordinator of a drugs project designed to cure leukaemia and some other forms of cancer
M: You're joking!
E: No, I'm deathly serious
M: How do I get it? Can you help me? Please...
E: Of course I can
M: Why me?
E: We're looking for a cross-section of the population
M: When can you help me?
E: When, my dear? I said I *could* but I won't.
E: I won't help you?
M: Why not?
E: I don't want to.
M: But ... I'm ill, I mean, I'm *dying*!
E: You realise that there's no hope?
M: No, don't say that!
E: I mean it. I know how you feel, I've seen it many times. You're in so much pain, aren't you?
E: Haven't you thought about death? I know you're scared...
E: It's the easiest option, you know you should, it's so romantic - and just think of the end to your suffering - you know I know best. I'm your friend, would I say it if it wasn't the best?
M: But ... well, I am tired.
E: Go now, do it. Go on, do it, I'm telling you to kill yourself.
