Iris.

Stay away from me.

I saw you.....I saw you just....What? What did you do? You just appeared!”

Mr Bolton, you’re sick. I’m here to help you!”

Like hell you are! Just back off! Stay back.......I’m warning you.”

Mr Bolton, stop this. I’m only trying to help.”

DON’T COME ANY NEARER! I saw you. And I know what I saw. You were just a haze, you’re not real. Keep well away.”

Look, touch my hand. Just the tip of my finger if you like. You’ll find I’m quite.....solid.”

Touch you? Not on your life. Back off!”

I’ve got your medicine here, Mr Bolton. You remember your medicine.”

No! Take it away. There’s nothing wrong with me. Leave me alone!”

I’ve tried to be patient with you, Mr Bolton, but this is taking too long. I do have other patients to see, you know. Come on now, give me your arm!”

DON’T TOUCH ME! I don’t want it. I don’t need no medicine. I know what I saw and there’s nothing wrong with me. It’s you. You’re not right!”

You are being totally irrational, Mr Bolton. Enough is enough!”

GET OFF! TAKE IT AWAY!”

There now, Mr Bolton. That wasn’t so bad was it!”

You are not real. I know you’re not....not human.....A good....replica, but....us human’s.....we don’t have black irises in.....our eyes.”
