When I was a kid, I knew the secret to a happy life. Play by the rules, work hard in school. And if you work hard in school, then your reward is... more school. And after more school, then you're given the best life has to offer. A job, and money, and a future. Filled with unending, singular pursuit, for *more*.
It's the wildest effort when you know what's going to happen. Will watching a person's fate give it purpose? Or is it just the muted feeling of watching a movie when you know how it ends? And then something happens that I will never forget - I'm wrong. For the first time ever, fate takes a detour and I glimpse something strange and new. A future where anything can happen. It's a beautiful thing. And the feeling it gives me is as close as I've ever felt... to pleasure.
That's the boss' nephew?
[in the background, upon seeing Fingers' desk] Nigga what? This fucking thing is huge!
What's he like?
[background] Fuck me! This is just like fuck!
As far back as I can remember, I've never lost a fight. I didn't fight well because I was big or fast or mean. I fought well because I could see the future. The problem with seeing the future is that it only comes in bits and pieces, like a reflection in a broken mirror. After a while though it's like playing a video game in your head. Do it enough times and you know all the moves.
Is there something the matter?
No. You're track record is perfect. And, with your stock market lock, we could... you could... maybe you should invest more.
No. Small amounts. Just keep it simple.
It's just... how do you do it?
Sometimes risking everything is the only choice you have.
But you don't seem to be taking any sort of chance?
I wasn't talking about me.
