Lenina cant help but think that Bernard is a little strange she remebers one night when they went to Amsterdam together and the whole time he seemed to not enjoy anything
During their date and even after Lenina kept trying to cheer him up and nothing seemed to work. She even suggested he take some Soma. This seemed to make him only more upset and he refused to take the Soma.
As they head home Bernard hovers above the water and confides in Lenina about the way he feels and how the only thing he wishes is to be free from the way he's conditioned. Lenina cant seem to understand this and begs him to take his soma.
