i wake up on the roof of the school. i leap from the roof & grab onto the rope on the flagpole. i slide down, grateful that i have gloves on, otherwise it'd burn like hell. i go home & greg is there. he tries to talk to me. "hey, ma-" "piss off, you abusive dipshit." " now wait just a-" i punch him so hard he falls to the ground, his head shaking like a bobble head. "if you EVER hit my mother again, you won't live to regret it. dana doesn't deserve an abusive father AND husband. jean was a dick, but you married her & swore to protect her. unless you want to be castrated, you'd better follow through on that." i make myself a burger, greg still staring at me with a look of horror & understanding. "the only time i hit your mother," he replied, "was when i was using." "bullshit." i grab my still sizzling burger & leave, my blood boiling in my veins.
