Vidalia never had to live with this part.
Sure, when Sour Cream was born, Marty wasn’t around, but that’s because Marty was never a real part of Vidalia’s life. She didn’t love him, he wasn’t interested in being a father, and so Vidalia had to be a single mom, sure (if Yellowtail hadn’t come into her life yet), but she didn’t have to deal with a big loss at the same time as getting overwhelmed with a baby.
But Greg did love Rose, and she did want to be a part of his life, and now she’s gone.
Greg’s not naive; he knows you can have more than one great love in your life, but…right here, and right now, that doesn’t change a damn thing. His family is down by one, and she’s never coming back.
God, it hurts just thinking about it.
