This right here. Such a deep sense of selfishness that his feelings are still all that really matters to him. Completely oblivious to the fact that his reaction is a perfect, shining display of the sort of selfishness that elicited her reaction to begin with.

I think people take that blood tie for granted, as though nothing they could do could ever get them exiled, because, hey, blood.

They don't realize that people do have a breaking point. And once that levee breaks, sometimes, what comes out isn't diplomatic or kind.

But it is, often enough, well and hard earned.

And what comes out is just raw, unfiltered truth.

And if they- he, in this case- had a tenth of an ounce of a fuck to give about them, he'd just take his medicine and accept it.

Hoping he'll wake the fuck up, for the sake of you and yours.

but you're most likely right.

That sort of selfishness is too often dyed in the wool.
