Hey Billy.


 


Evening Officer.


 


This your mother's grave?


 


Yeah. It's eight years today.


 


I'm sorry.


 


After dad, I was just so horrible to her.


 


I'm sure she knew that you loved her.


 


Yeah. Officer?


 


Yeah, Billy? Wh-


 


I know what Sean told you.


 


Billy put the gun down


 


No. Gemma would hate me if she found out. Her and Martin were close.


 


Then why did you kill him?


 


I had to. You know what he used to do. I couldn't let that carry on.


 


Billy, I'm not gonna hurt you.


 


She can't know I did it. She'd be so upset. She was so miserable after Mom.


 


Billy, just put the gun down. I have a family.


 


had a family.


 


Please, I have two kids. A boy with a little sister.


 


Ugh, shut up. Just shut up. Just shut up, or I'll kill you.


 


Billy, you know you couldn't get away with it.


 


Why not? Sean's dead, no-one's here and I can head down to Tennessee.


 


Billy, it's okay. Everything's gonna be okay.


 


I could be out of Carolina in two hours max. Don't you understand? Then I wouldn't have to deal with this.


 


Listen, I was close to your parents. I don't need to tell anyone about this. It could stay between us.


 


What? So someone else can trace it all back to me? I don't wanna live like this.


 


Billy, no! Don't!


 


No. I'm thirty-five and I have to go to a place where no-one knows me and hide or I have to go to prison, for God knows how many years.


 


Billy-


 


No, just shut up! I've had enough! From you, everyone!


 


What would your mother say? 


 


She'd understand. She would've made sure I didn't mess everything up like I have.


 


Are you gonna pull that trigger? On your mother's grave?


 


I loved my mother.
