you keep crying? I have told you too many times
this is for your own good. No child of mine will
be brought up as a liar. Don't interrupt, you did
lie! Yes, you did, and your denial only makes me
realize how hurt that makes me feel? What a fool
you make me look in front of the other mothers
and children? Don't you hear the whispering in
the streets? You are a disgrace, and I would send
you to your room without dinner had it been
have told your dear mother, then there would have
been no tears. Do I enjoy crying? Of course I do,
since I seem to be doing little else these days. You
complain all you like, this is about my feelings
and not you.
I am fine. You
are the liar. And nobody likes a liar.

Millen's daughter! Just friends? A friend who is
a girl is a girlfriend! Point proven. You lied to
your mother. So I had to be harsh.
talking our feelings out does? I feel so much
better now. Mother knows best. Have you learnt
your lesson? Darren, I trust you and you break my
trust, but I am willing to forgive. What do you
say? Do speak, its as quiet as the grave in here.
Darren, speak to me! How could you give your own
mother the silent treatment? Right, that is it,
if your going to be so immature then I wont sow
your head back on until morning.
