I got him a SIN. Pearls before swine, you might say, but I still hope that he gets his act together. He deserves the chance. I think the first thing that’s going to happen is a road trip with Cecile into Tir Tairngire and that’s a train wreck waiting to happen. But I can tell them all I want that Tir is a piece of shit in a gift wrapper, they need to see it for themselves. If they can get the money together – Tempo isn’t exactly the cheapest drug there is.
When I look at him, I see myself. I was just as convinced that I fully knew what I was doing and that I was in control. I was quite a bit older than Whistler, with much less excuse to be that stupid. The thing is, I laughed at anyone who dared to hint that I had a problem and Whistler is of course doing the same. Well, with him being Whistler, he gets angry. I see no way of stopping this. I could just lock him up, but that’s not going to help. Either he sees that he needs help or he doesn’t, I can’t make him. That I learned the hard way.
Whistler is going to crash and burn and I’m going to let him.
