“I spoke with Rusty before we left the training center.”
Mary stilled, as did Bruce. They both looked at Candice with guilty expressions.
Candice sighed. “He’s been telling the guards he made a deal and he has a token to prove it.”
“We had to tell some lies to win this war,” Mary reminded her.
“You should do it.”
“Stop it!” Mary knew what was coming. Candice had been staring at her scars since she’d entered the room.
“You owe it to me for what I did to your face.”
Mary came over to the bed, furious. “You are my daughter! I would never do that!”
Mary’s eyes filled with tears. “You evil little bitch.”
Candice opened her arms. “Can you forgive me?”
Mary crawled onto Candice’s lap and bawled like a baby.
People in the room also cried, but they hid it behind yawns and glances out the window.
Over Mary’s shoulder, Candice looked at Bruce. “Dad?”
Bruce joined them, fighting not to cry. Candice was saying nothing had changed for her, that she still had a father and she loved him.
