Standing he knocks the chair over with force. He clamps his hands on top of his head and paces the room. “You’re an asshole you know that! I fucking knew, I knew,” he says, more to himself.
“Max…” I start.
“No! No, don’t you dare ‘Max’ me. You’re a selfish bastard, Knox, you should have told me!” he shouts at me again as tears fall from his eyes. “After everything we’ve been through together, don’t you think I deserved to know?”
“Max, please just listen to me,” I beg, standing up to meet him.
“No, I don’t want to know, go die for all I care! I hate you, I fucking hate you.”
He storms over to the sliding glass door, pushing it so hard it bounces back to hit his shoulder. After a fight with the door, he storms off to the beach. I am about to go after him and explain, but my dad tells me to sit down and leave him alone.
“You should have told us, son,” his voice is low and hoarse from unshed tears.
“I’m sorry, Dad. Mom just died and I found out, I didn’t want to add to the grief.”
He shakes his head and clears his throat. “You should have told me, Knox,” he whispers, finally shedding the tears he has been trying to hold back.
