It was the summer after graduation.
Maggie. What happened?
My mom happened.
She and I always saw things differently--
for as long as I can remember.
But I was scared.
Maggie was scared.
We thought she could help.
I told her about Maggie, and she said that she'd...
she'd handle it.
Eighteen years old and pregnant,
and here's this woman telling you how it's gonna be.
Your mom offered her money?
She was determined to keep me on track,
and that didn't include me becoming a father at eighteen.
That's one word for it.
I was going to go to vassar,
but then that suddenly became too close to home,
so I transferred to Hollis and I became a Fitz.
There were terms involved with the money.
They included never talking to me again.
