Damn, I guess she just wanted to hit’em where it hurt. (he pauses, and with his finger as a pointer, simulates thinking aloud)
You know Jean, she wasn’t pregnant? Nope, not even a day, she must’ve known that.
She had a dresser full of cash and a modest bank account. I mean, no Fort Knox but enough for a teenage girl to get her freak on. So it couldn’t have been about money. Looks like she she wanted to ruin him, make him bleed. (he pauses again)

(silent for a moment. He stares off into space, subconsciously rubs the scar, well hidden beneath his high collared shirt then utters an unfinished sentence)
More things in Heaven and Hell my Dear Horatio…
