How are you doing all ? . I've recently read a book and find the following part of a dialogue confusing :
".. You'd like to see me dead. But you don't"
This "don't" baffled me because i expected "will not" instead to complete the meaning as I understand it, i.e ..But I'll not give you pleasure of watching it . My question is why the negative form of the auxiliary "do" is used in this case and if you could possibly give some brief explanation.
