I'm not denying that, nor am I unaware of it. The town itself probably breeds that sort of complacency because of how it seems to live and breathe the supernatural, but I'm not unaware.
There were a handful of boys I went to school with that were even close to 'friends', and none of them ever knew. Not talking about it? Pretending it doesn't exist? That's normal, and add to it my family and the way it was drilled into me not to speak of it - it's why I didn't say anything to you.
We could hold mirrors up: We both did it, we did it for what amounts to the same reason, or so nearly so that the difference is indistinguishable - and you were probably right to call this off, because you can't build a relationship on that.
