"I want to make a bet with you."
"Your good works, your heroic deeds. Let's see who can do the most good deeds!"
"Nonsense. I am not a hero. I am no one's saviour. I am a wandering scourge. I am death walking. Where I do my works, the chance to do good has already passed."
"Then your kill-count. Let's see who can strike down the most victims!"
"My past may be written in blood, but I have not yet lost all decency and sanity."
"Then... let's see who can make the other fall in love with them first."
"I do not love."
"Does that mean you're afraid to take the bet?"
"I was not afraid before. I was unwilling."
"Are you afraid to take the bet now?"
"Are you?"
"It is nonsense. I do not love."
"Then it should be an easy win. Shouldn't it?"
"Shouldn't it?"
"Limited only by victory."
"You would force me to tolerate your presence until the absurd happens or one of us dies."
"Are you afraid to take me on? Is there some chance that you might lose?"
"Do we have a bet?"
"Do we?"
"If we have a bet? You can go. You will not need to cut your way out through flesh and blood. You will not need to bite your way through your chains and my walls. You can just... go."
"Are you sure you aren't afraid?"
"I outlived all my fears long ago. All that remains is purpose. And wrath."
"Then do we have a bet?"
"Do we?"
