A web of my own

by Rani Rao

If only there were a word or stream of emojis that could adequately convey what a hot-headed, shit-for-brains, selfish, self-righteous, stubborn, RRRRRRAARRGHHHH.
I get it. I want safety and security for the Canyons too. More than anything. But taking on the gangs? The police, the Corps? Does she think she can just smash her goddamn wolf-fist through all of them at once?! Unbelievable.
The worst part is that she's going to smash Colt's dreams along with everything else. I know why she's concerned. His dad is a Steel Panther - they basically want our heads on pikes in the middle of the market. She can't see it though - he has to be able to do this himself. He has to figure out who he is and where he comes from on his own terms. I hope I didn't take things too far tonight. I don't know what I'm feeling right now. There's so much going on - I have to take things slow, have to protect the people I care about, can't let anyone get hurt...
I almost revealed myself to Charity. I thought I could go through with it, but I lost my nerve at the last minute. She seemed so vulnerable, and she doesn't even realize how strong she is, how much we look up to her. Am I protecting the people I care about, or deceiving my friends? Are these things mutually exclusive?
Going forward, it's time to knuckle down. People out there need us. We have to be here for them. To Hell with Joni - we'll fight for the Canyons even if she wants to tear everything apart in the process. We're the goddamn Vandals, and our enemies are in for a rude awakening.
