“He’s emotionally abused her,” Tom cut in angrily.
“Yes, well,” She let out a sigh. “We are not Bennetts, or Grays or Van Winkles. Our family was never one to be supportive of each other. Not openly at least. Gino has always been like this. Even to me, and I as his lover at one point. I wasn’t a good example for Faye, was I?” She mused aloud. “She saw the relationship I had with her father and must have assumed that it was normal to have someone berate her.”
“I always knew that dad was like this,” Faye answered, honestly. “I thought it came with the fame. But after talking to Tom, apparently the Bennetts are not like this. So, I say we end this and…” She bit her lip. “I don’t know. I don’t want to get rid of dad. He’s my dad.”
“It’s something that we have to work out,” Carly said. “And if we can’t, then for our sanity and emotional wellbeing we have to leave. But first, Brian is right. We have to end this charade once and for all.”
