He's stealing you. Against your will? Is it against your will? Not that this isn't shocking, it is. I'm shocked here. If you're trying to shake me in my boots then mission accomplished, consider me shaking. I know I'm not one for outward, I don't know, signs or whatever, but I just don't know what you trying to tell me here. What are you wanting me to do? Fight him? A duel? I'll do it if it would make any difference. But I'm afraid that, and correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm afraid that all you're doing is leaving. It's a funny thing about you, Sylvia. This feeling I always got that at any moment you might just disappear, fly away. And I'd have no idea why except that I somehow knew that about you. That you were another creature before? like a sea-bird, an albatross, and one day you'd realize that you prefer being an albatross and you'd just glide away. You see? Are we gliding?
