"I know that I shouldn’t have kept it from you all this time, but I had to. I did it to protect you. I know what it did to you last time you investigated, and I wanted to protect you from that, both Chris and I did. But, you need to know. I can’t keep it from you anymore. Lying to you this past year has been killing me. I know who killed your family, but why they killed them I haven’t figured out yet. Please don’t hate me, Hayles. I can’t stand the thought of you hating me."
