Cynthia had never felt like more of a failure.
In some ways, she was embarrassed of her son.
She didn’t tell her friends she had sent Connor to rehab last summer; she’d said he was on a retreat. Everyone knew, of course. It was an open secret, but one that Cynthia refused to own up to.
When the ambulance had come to her house in September and her concerned neighbors asked what had happened, Cynthia had replied that Connor had an accident but was alright now. She’d told herself, at the time, that it was his news to tell. And to a certain extent, Cynthia still believed that.
But she was embarrassed. And ashamed. Ashamed that she couldn’t seem to help him, embarrassed that at every turn he seemed to find a new way to get worse and it was her fault.
Takes place during the Winter and Spring Epilogues of The Desperate Type.
