25. Dark Places

Care to read with me?

“I assumed everything bad in the world could happen, because everything bad in the world already did happen.”

“She talked to me because we had the same chemicals in our blood: shame, anger, greed. Unjustified nostalgia.”

“I’d earned my money, I thought, resentful for no reason. Lyle seemed completely fine with paying me. That’s what I did, though—I had angry, defensive conversations in my head, got mad at things that hadn’t even happened yet.”

“She never wrote Mommy, I thought, we never called her that even as kids. I want my mommy, I thought. We never said that. I want my mom.”

“But I’ve just never been good at directions. Like, if I reach a fork in the road, and I can take a right or a left, I will choose whichever is wrong. Like, I should just listen to my gut and then do the opposite. But I don’t. I don’t know why that is.”
