[He looks up, meets her eyes because she deserves that much.]
Everything your family has said about me and mine is true. Mostly. What they've gotten wrong is only because they don't know the truth, that I've likely already done what they think a dozen times already and feel nothing about doing it again. You want to know if I knew about Sam? I did. And I did nothing to stop it. You want to know if I'm sleeping with Chloe? I'm not currently, but I have. When she asked me if I would protect her from who shot her, I promised to rip their throats out with my teeth. I am a horrid person and before this month is over I'm going to do things that are inconceivable to most because I will always protect my family first.
Which now includes you. And you deserve better than what we're going to drag you into. I don't know what you're going to do with our child. If you want to keep it, if you want to put it up for adoption, but for the love of God, don't let my family know. Not me, not my brothers, or my sisters, because once we know the child is there, we're going to come for it. And they deserve better.
[He pauses, licks his lips.] Once I thought I would have this conversation with joy, that I would get to watch your heart break and feel joy about it, but I don't.
