Chapter in Progress
I think Carrick has stolen $120 from me on Mother's Day. She denies it, and demands that I tell her where I'd hidden it. She says she only took $20. She accuses Vanessa (the girl from Bronxville), who stayed here the night before , of taking it. General mayhem. I later discover the $100 in my pocket. She's right. She only took $20 from me. My bad.
Carrick writes Chaos that she has a five-bag-a-day habit but swears to me that she's not using at all; she is just bullshitting Chaos because she wants to dump him and he doesn't want to go out with a junkie.
Like a true junkie, she's now lying about lying. Or is she lying about lying about lying? It still makes my head hurt trying to figure it out.
Meanwhile, Carrick has become friendly with Jason Tyler, a clean-cut, 34-year-old ex-junkie who has returned to Hastings to live in his mother's house after losing his job and getting divorced. He is engaging, and seems sincere. He takes Carrick to some twelve-step meetings, and our hopes soar.
