Amidst the chaos of my life, I’ve realized that not all wars can be won.
I see it now.
My stubbornness was peeled away, allowing me to see through my unrealistic desire to take down a powerful criminal empire.
I see it…and it’s too late.
I never could turn my back on family—even when I know I should.
It would have been okay. It should have been okay…but it wasn’t, and now the stain of betrayal is too prominent to ignore.
I blame my brother…
I blame my friend…
…I blame myself.
