Part XXII: Lukewarm Anger
His expression is unreadable.
‘It was my fault your parents left. I told Tim that you’re my daughter, even though I had no way of knowing. Mel really never said, no matter how hard I tried to induce her to make a statement. But I knew Tim was ready to leave, so I lied. I thought he would go alone. When I realised what he was doing, I tried to stop him. He was so angry he punched me.’
I’d like to pull of that enigmatic expression of his. I want to be angry, but I must be too exhausted.
