He narrates the story almost in tears saying that even when he slept, he was half awake because he felt it was his duty to protect his mother and the slightest noise would make him jump out of bed to go check on his mother.


The worst case scenario was when he came home for the holidays and his dad came home drunk as usual and decided to hit his mum hard to a point she bled and all DJ Soxxy could hear were screams so he decided that was the day and he would stand up to his father. He explains that moment with bitterness saying he knew it was going down, he contemplated doing something bad to him but he just let it slide. The image of his mum bleeding will forever be in his mind even if he is on better terms with his father now.
