i was just wondering.
is this what you wanted to do?
[[i never wanted to come here]]i don't think i did either
i don't think you wanted to bring him the knife either, did you
[[no. i wanted to bring it to mom.]]yeah, you did.
but he was in the way,
and he was angry,
so he tried to stab you.
[[that was all i was able to tell the lady in the house]]you're aware that house was too small to be real?
that you're remembering it wrong?
you know you have to be.
it was too small. too in-the-middle-of-nowhere, too much.
what kind of building does an official law-person do their business in that only has room for a desk and a chair on either side?
with the walls crammed on either side of you and no way for her to get out without clambering over the desk?
you're deluding yourself.
but no one else remembers it, and you don't remember anything else.
in any case,
whatever you told her, it wasn't enough.
your dad took your house.
you took it back eventually.
[[i know. i said it was "peaceful." mom won't let that go.]]yeah.
she won't let a lot of things go
[[i know]]she won't let go of the idea that he was a good man
you've gotten her to acknowledge that he abused her, and even say those words, too, haven't you
[[yeah, i have]]i'm sorry.
i know it's a lot
[[no you don't]]...
i won't fault you for that one.
i know how you feel about that kind of saying.
oh, i did it again, didn't i-
[[it's ok]]i surely hope it is
when are you going back to dr. walker?
[[i'm not doing this again.]]i know, i know, you hate it,
you really should-
[[i told you. i'm not doing this again.]]...alright.
you can't run away from it forever.
[[stop telling me about it]]you know i can't.
in any case, for now, i just need you to take your medicine.
don't dump it down the drain this time.
and by the way, i always find it when you zone out and forget it somewhere.
i'm going to watch you take it this time.
i just want you to get better
