It is the 22nd of April, 2002. Michael has seen Rachel twice. The first time, three days earlier, he tried to reconnect her with Mischa. Rachel would have nothing of that. She never considered herself his girlfriend anyway. It was all his doing. Rachel was confused after her divorce. She fell prey to a smooth operator. She regrets it deeply. Mischa was really disgusting. He has no spine. She wanted Michael to be careful with a “friend” like him.
    Michael and Rachel were sitting in her car. The car was parked downhill from Michael’s house. Michael’s faithful dog Cosmo was having an anxiety attack. He was trying to get out of the house to warn Michael. Cosmo clawed a hole through the garage door. Michael’s neighbor Tony came out to intercept Cosmo. His warning went unheeded.
    Rachel is talking to Michael again. She wants to apologize for being too blunt and even rude. She is not sure why she is being that way. She feels that she has to be like that. Maybe she is like that because she wants to be completely real. Maybe she thinks that Michael is deep and brave enough to handle any sort of truth. Michael knows that she respects him, right?
    But Michael has too much of a spine. Rachel is concerned about his lawsuits. Rachel is concerned about Min Zhu threatening Michael’s life. She thinks that life has a lot more to it than being a warrior fighting unpleasant things or unpleasant people, no matter for what reason. She thinks that family is one of the most meaningful parts of life. She is hungry for love. She has failed to make it in her first marriage. She is looking for another chance. But she does not see how a sweet family can be built upon the atmosphere of fighting and the danger caused by it. Michael must have been a spoiled rich kid living for pure ideas. Rachel does not think that that is a wise way to live in the era we are living in now.


    Rachel wants nothing from Michael now. She likes him, she liked him the first time she saw him. He is an attractive man. But she wants to be friends with him only, at least for now. And that is it.
    Rachel opens her legs. The computer beeps. Isabelle wants Michael’s attention. She wants to come over. There are no strings attached. Michael looks at Rachel. There it is, free cheese in the mousetrap.
