I’ve established something. Anyone who ever says anything bad about Jay reflects it directly on me. It pisses me off to hear people accuse him of things I know he doesn’t and would never do, simply because it’s not part of his personality. And it doesn’t piss me off just a little, Oh No. I get shaky angry, adrenaline goes way up, and I want to hurt something.
I’m not one who gets angry for myself, oh no… but trigger those defenses by attacking someone I care about, and the Monster is loose.
If that’s how I react with Jay, who is fully capable of protecting himself, what will I be like with Children??
