“Where are you going?” Armei asks.
“Relax. I’ll be back in two hours.” Armei’s boyfriend Lee says.
“No, you are not. Liar. I will shoot you if you leave me.” Armei pulls out the new gun Lee just bought from a gun show in New York City.
“Hi, be careful with that. That’s not a toy.”
“Now go to wash the dishes first, then come back to give me a massage. After that take out the garbage. Then you can go, but make sure you are back in one hour.”
“Are you being melodramatic here? Argue about some little chores. Now give me the gun.” He laughs. He never takes her seriously. He never listens to her.
Bang, bang, bang. It’s so loud and her hands hurt and she wakes up.
It’s a dream. Lee’s sleeping beside her. She didn’t want him to get the gun, but he still went out and got it with two of his buddies. He also wants to join the “Community Patrol” team, ostensibly to protect the Asian community, but in essence to show off his new purchase. She doesn’t want him to go patrolling since she doesn’t want him to shoot anybody. What a weird dream.
