Ha, could you have imagined either of us running around and taking orders from that insane cheerleading coach of yours? Besides, it meant that we would’ve had to give up smoking and drinking, but I guess you wouldn’t have complained about that. I know you’ll stay, Maddie. I’m just saying that you don’t have to cut them out of your life completely because of me. Even if I’m the horrible ‘Spic that stole their daughter away. Trust me, Maddie, my parents are better off not knowing. It’s better not to pretend. I’ll probably go see my abuela and probably my tio and tia. They won’t say a word.
Maddie… people have always looked at me like I was less than them. First it was because I was a girl, and secondly, because of the color of my skin. This is really no different, well except for the torture part. But it’s really not that bad, Maddie. We’ll make it out. I know it. We’ll find a way soon. Well, since neither of us wants to do anything drastic, how about we make sure that we don’t have to, okay?
I think it would have been an interesting thing to see.. and yeah that would have been another plus. The only perk to her being here is that she had to stop. I was positive one of you was going to end up seriously hurting yourself. But.. Maddie worries too much. Chances are when my father finds out I’m married and in love with a girl, it isn’t going to matter much if I want them in my life anyways. Don’t… don’t say the things they say. They’re too ugly and you’re too perfect. That’s good. As long as there’s someone you can still have from your family.
But you’re not. You’re not less than anyone and hearing those hunters, and the things they did. You’re— you’re still a person and a woman with a functioning brain and feelings and a heart that pumps blood and they think that because they’ve been told that they’re better that it makes you— I’m sorry. Maddie rambling about things that you already know is… silly. It’s just… you say it isn’t bad and I know you mean that because you’re so strong, but it just bothers me, I guess, that other people can look at you and not see what I do. It’s their loss I guess. But yeah… we’ll make sure. And we’ll get out. We’re going to have all the things we want one day, Dylan.
