I told Lucille there was no settling down.

I can't.

Not when Goldie's concerned.

She was right next to me and I didn't know she was dead until I woke up. I couldn't protect her. I'd feel better if I'd been able to see the guy who did this to her. Hell, I'd feel even better if I'd broken the guy's jaw.

But I didn't, and there's nothing I can do about that. It doesn't matter.

There's no settling down, not until I found out who did this. He's going to pay. The hell I send him to will be heaven compared to what I do with him. I'm going to make sure he suffers for what he did to Goldie.

No settling down. Not until I can tell Goldie that I got him good, real good. She'd hear me, from her spot in heaven. I know she'd hear me.

I know she will.
