  1. Summary

    If you’re in Heaven then you’ll forgive me, dear
    Because that’s what they do up there
    But if you’re in Hell, then what can I say
    You probably deserved it anyway
    I guess I’m gunna find out any day
    For we will meet again
    And there’ll be Hell to pay

    Summary

    He looked at his hands shaking, still seeming red from being kept in a grip, and it was like after all those times, raw and ugly, and he didn’t get why, because it’d been so long. So long since the last time he lost himself that way.

    Summary

    Tommy hasn't told Alfie about the migraines. He doesn’t want him to know, needs to keep hold of some self-respect, the man already thinks he’s an emotional wreck, no need to prove he’s a physical one too. This secret doesn't want to be kept.

    Summary

    Tommy calls on Sunday, as promised. 

    She hasn’t told Charles about seeing his father last week. He’s struggling enough, the poor kid, without having his hopes raised. He’s taken the last few months so hard. Losing his sister, and barely seeing his father, and then Lizzie walking away from the marriage…it’s not been easy for him. Lizzie loves him with all her heart, and she’s selfishly glad that he chose to come with her, but she knows he’s having a tough time. She knows she can’t make up for what he lacks. For all Tommy’s faults, he’s still Charles’s father, and poor little Charlie desperately wants his father’s love and care. He doesn’t need to have his hopes raised just to be dashed yet again.

    But the telephone rings at eleven o’clock on the dot.

     

    Or: it will take a month of Sundays for Lizzie - and Charlie - to start forgiving Tommy.
