The days pass like speeding traffic here, Chloe is always tired but follows me out whenever I want to. Mother sneaks away late at nights and comes back before I wake up in the morning thinking I won't notice she was gone. I know she goes to see Frank but nothing more and I sometimes want to follow her just to find out what they talk about.
When I was a child she never thought I understood anything, but I did. My father was different, he always talked to me as if I was an adult. "You must now one thing, angel" he said. "You must know that people will always try to hurt you, but it's not because they're evil. They do it because they care."
