"Who do you think you’re fooling? You’re so scared I can smell it. Your fear is the most predictable thing about you. You’ve lived your whole life in fear. Terrified of making a mistake; Scared to death you won’t get that A, that ticket out. Afraid you’ll never escape your mother and her name tag. Or your father who won’t return your calls. Thats why you shunned Luke and every other boy who has ever tried to put his hands on you. You’re afraid of getting that bad seed. Afraid of giving birth to a child you never wanted. A child you could only blame for your own wretched existence. Stuck in a small town with a small name. Destined to become that very thing you despise the most. I know all about it, Leigh Ann. I wrote the book! I know you."
