RELLIAN: She wanted to be flushed down the toilet. Dad MADE her crazy. That’s why she killed herself. She wanted to leave. She didn’t want to live in the forest anymore. Dad is dangerous. Mom had psychotic episodes. She had hallucinations. Of smashing our heads in. With rocks. I heard them talking about it. You think you know everything. You think our lives are so great. You think Dad is perfect! Nana and Grandpa’s lives. They’re much better.

Rell turns and races back toward the RV Camp.
