I HATE YOU; I NEED YOU.
I thought we agreed to be strangers. I broke you as much as I broke myself, but maybe I was never meant to stay away. I owe him money now, Lynn, and you’re the only one who I can trust— the only one I ever trusted.
I would have killed for you the moment I met you; I would have died for you when learned of the angel beneath it all. I need your help more than ever, but all I can see is red.
You broke us.
I’ll do what I have to, do the thing I’m good at. I’ll run one last con, steal a fortune from a mob boss, win you back. Then, I’ll do what I’m best at: I’ll remind you why you left me in the first place.
