- Alex's background—his life—his past. How could I tell her? I couldn't. His background involves his past which is mostly about his parents. That they are divorced and that his mother passed away. Knowing that if I tell Joanna, I can never remove the guilt. I can never let myself feel that I betrayed him.
- ''Joanna, the deal is off.'' I mutter, ''There's nothing to this. If you want information, you'll get it yourself. It's your job anyway.''
