And then there was the whole thing with Julia Larabee, when Mom confessed to her murder because she was afraid I’d done it. And my getting drunk and lost in Mexico. My mom was willing to marry that jerk Keith to get me a healthy kidney for a transplant.
So how have I repaid my parents for all that they’ve done for me? Let’s see, I’ve worried them sick with my drinking, I’ve lied to them, and I’ve practically blackmailed them over this Jade thing.
Why is it, the harder I try to protect them, the more damage I spew? I would never ever do anything deliberately to hurt my family. So why does it feel like that’s all I’m doing these days?
