Nobody, and I do mean nobody ever crosses me and gets away with it.
Cletus Patterson took what belonged to me and even though it was over twenty years ago,
I ain't forgot, and I ain't likely to ever forget.
And for him and Marva to keep my daughter up at their place for two days and not let
me know? That's gonna cost 'em, cost 'em big. I been so worried about my little girl.
Yeah, daddy's little girl ain't so little no more. There's more pleasure outta her now
than there was when she was little. A lot more, but, that's not something needs to get out, you know?
Molly, she's mine,she belongs to me, and it purely makes my blood boil to think
some Ridger put his hands on what belongs to me. Cletus took what was mine once, he won't never take what's mine again.
But, this is all workin' out pretty good. I'll get Molly to lie, and beleive me, she'll
do what I tell her to, if she knows what's good for her. She'll lie and say Cletus's brat Lonnie done this vile thing to her,
and I'll have him in prison for life. I'll get my revenge on Marva and Cletus, and I won't have to lift a finger.
Molly made some kind of noise about telling the truth. Reckon what she meant by that?
Well, it don't matter none, regardless of who the real culprit is, Cletus and Marva are gonna pay for it.
Oh, this is so good. Nobody crosses Harlan Matthews, nobody!
I hate Harlan. He's a vile, mean, cruel bastard, but he's my husband. I can't leave
him, he'll kill me, but I can't let him ruin an innocent young boy's life for revenge.
I wonder if I told him the truth.... No, no never that. He'd kill me, and I don't even
want to think about what he'd do to Molly.
Oh God, what am I gonna do? I can't just sit by and let him ruin that boy, but even
more, I can't let him hurt my daughter ever again.
God help me, I've got to tell him the truth. Even if it costs me my life. I can't let
him hurt Molly again. I won't.
