Scarlett looks her up and down. She’s not hot-angry, but this may be the most real anger Raven has ever seen from her mother. Scarlett acts calmer the angrier she feels.

“You ungrateful wretch, I gave you everything you needed, and more and now you want me to have been honest? Honesty woulda gotten you killed, or into a whorehouse more likely. You’d’ve had the stupidest dreams of rescue by your rich Daddy and you’d still be scrubbin floors instead of captaining a ship if I’da been honest with you. You needed what I gave you, and don’t you be thinking I done you wrong. You did fine. Now that you’re all important, I get to see how you mess it up on your own.”

“Crazy old bitch. You know damned well what I’m talking about. Guess I’ve gotta spell it out.”
