The television is on, but neither of them really watches it. They laugh occasionally at stupid ads, or random bits of dialogue from whatever's on, but they spend most of the evening talking. Justin tells her about his parents, about his love for singing.
⠀⠀And she tells him things, too. None of the huge stuff. She doesn't talk about the Kardashians. But she tells him enough. He asks about her anxiety and, surprisingly, she finds it easy to be honest. She tries to explain the crippling fear that keeps her in that house. The fear of leaving, the dread of humiliation, the belief, a fear that she might even die.
