“My mother is a whore.”
“Why you say that?”
“She’s a whore is all.”
“What about your dad?
“He beat me over the head with his ski pole.”
“You were 14 years old. I see this in the trees, a branch cut cleanly, and in the windows of the house, crosses, to hide the secret.”

“You know what my mother did? “
“I know you say your mother is a whore.”
“She said, ‘Eric, your heart, ‘ and my dad wouldn’t stop until he got off the telephone with the principal.”

“She told me in a letter your father suffered allot and then he died. She said he beat her then said he loved her”.
“He called my son a beaner.”
“You learned not to trust him long before yet you gave him another chance. I give you another chance. I ask you give your mom another chance.”
“I can’t.”
“She taught me to smoke pot then she beat the crap out of me. She’s crazy. “
“She went to rehab and she got help after your dad died.”

“I’ll call her, nothing else to do in here.”
“Where were you when your father died?”
“At the River, with Sherry.”
“How did you take it?”
“I didn’t think about it.”
“Where did you meet Sherry?”
“At Northwood Country Club.”
“How long did it last?”
“She wouldn’t allow Emily and Shane to visit us.”
“She got jealous.”
“I’m not jealous.”
“You know, I lived under the bridge for a long time. ”
“Did you see me move into my house?”
“I can’t blame someone else.”

“Did you go dancing?”
“You can do what you want.”
“That’s right.”
“I love you, I’m sorry.”

“You know I live alone, you watched me everyday.”
“I saw you dancing with your husband at the Ziggurat, it’s where I saw you first.”
“Yes, my dear husband and I danced. My husband is gone for several years.”
“You’re the only Lady around here who can dance.”
“Why didn’t you ask me to dance.”
He hung his head.
“The police say your prior felony is from beating Sherry, is it true?”
“We drank every night and every day for six years, she wouldn’t let me invite my kids to her house. She’s a controlling bitch. She cheated on me with Steve when we stayed out at the David Ranch then she rubbed my nose in it.She nearly bit my thumb off.”
“Are you saying I drank with you and provoked you, too.”
“Shhhhhhhhh, there’s tape recorders in here.”
“You promised me you’d tell me everything if I visit you in jail.”
“I love you.”
“Please call your mom.”
“She’ll be mad at me.”
“I told her how you ended up here, she understands.”
“My dad beat her to a bloody pulp. I called the police.”
“How old were you when that happened?”
“Your dad did wrong.Your mom should’ve had him arrested.”
“Dad would’ve cut her off, are you kidding, it’s all about money with her.”

“It’s your money.”
“She’s in charge."
“Why didn’t she help you when you lost Loraine and kids?”
“She hates mexicans.”
“Loraine is cherokee. I talk to her everyday at the shop.”
“She hates me.”
“I know.”

“Last time I saw her she asked me to make enchiladas so I went to her house in Forestville and I made food then a guy came over and started kissing her.”
“She didn’t marry you.”
“She was my girlfriend.”

“How many times did you see me naked in my house?”
“I watched you every night.”
“I didn’t cover the windows because there’s no houses back there. I didn’t know you were there.”
“I had my tent down under the rock.”
“ I saw it. I walked down there to see where you lived.”
“Is my sleeping bag down there?”
“I didn’t touch anything.”

“I’m sorry.”
“How’re you feeling?”
“I love you.”
“Do you think of me?”
“All the time.”
“Do you want me to come back?”
“Your mother will hire an attorney. Plead not guilty. You didn’t rape me and I won the fight.”
“Then why am I here?”
“Must I remind you?”
