“If I was there, I would walk on literal fire, and I would pull that guy over,” Kevin said.

He died ashamed of you. I think that’s the part that really gets you, right? The shame he felt for you, and the pride he felt for me. I mean, you also don’t chase daddy’s shadow, Kevin. You are chasing mine. But you will not be him, and you will never be me. You will never know what you want to devote yourself to to anyone other than yourself. You will pretend.

Kevin replied, “You know, I used to think that the worst thing that happened to me was the day my dad died. That day they sent you home. Hand to god, Randall. The worst thing that happened to me was the day you were taken. they are at home. ”
