Glen caught me sneaking out of the house and now everyone knows about me and Colin. Mom does nothing but cry and won’t leave her room, while Dad is accusing me of being a whore. Glen and Tim are just itching for a chance to confront Colin for what he’s done to their little sister, so I can’t go to him, just when I need him the most.
By the time they were done tearing Colin and our relationship apart, I was starting to doubt the truth myself.
Janet knows I’ve been seeing Sylvie again. She’s used that to turn the kids completely against me, and she’s been spreading rumors that I was paying Sylvie to sleep with me. It has already cost me my biggest clients, and now that Patrick is spreading those same stories at school it could cost me Sylvie as well. But I won’t let that happen.
Sylvie was mine—mine to love, mine to protect—and I needed to step up and deal with the situation once and for all.
