Everything Blake said washes over me, and with it, the realizations surface hard and fast. My best friendâs uncle is a kidnapper. April is a pawn. They will probably kill her. Thereâs nothing I can do. Thank God I got away, but now I may lose my best friend forever. And lastly, how did I know nothing about this?
It all makes sense, though. This is the reason Aprilâs mom always kept them away from her uncle. This is the reason sheâs been acting weird, and this is what made April so reluctant to go the club. I canât believe she wouldnât tell me something this big. Maybe she didnât know? The thoughts are endless, swirling around my head. I donât know where to begin, but I know one thing: thereâs no way I can be alone. No matter how much I want to.
âSo, whereâs your place then?â I ask him directly, and thereâs immediate relief on his face that Iâm considering it.
Sheâs finally starting to unwind. I tell myself I should be keeping notes on the progress of my witness. But who am I kidding? Iâve been watching her like a hawk from the moment I saw her, and it has nothing to do with keeping witness notes. Iâve done my fair share of tough assignments in this job, but this is hard in a different way. Sticking like glue to the woman who got away.
She was the first one to break me back then, and it sucked. One moment Iâm getting up the courage to ask her out, and the next she leaves for the entire summer and comes back acting like Iâm the fucking invisible man. Christ, we were good friends. It was a waste. I have no idea what I did or didnât do. She just never called again. Women. This is why they have a bad reputation. This is why we need a manual. Things break on the inside, and we donât even know they need repairing before they chew us out or take off.
Not long after it went sour with Carrie, my mom finally snapped. She caught Dad spending money on unsavory pussy and left him. Well, she left us all, really. Brenda and I had to deal with his rages after that. The Wiley old bastard made sure he didnât take it too far because he needed us. Without Mom in the picture, he had no one to pick on. He didnât want to be alone with his resentments and pain. I wish weâd had the courage to leave earlier, but we needed to hit rock bottom before we saw there was another way.
Change is like that. Sometimes shit needs to get utterly unbearable.
