A Lucky Man
“I’m sorry, Kate. I’m sorry I can’t be the man you need me to be. I’m sorry that I’m driving you to nightmares. I’m just sorry. You and Malcolm are better off without me, at least until I get my head straight. I can’t keep doing this to you. Dr. Anderson offered to take me on a camping trip next week. I’m going to go tonight. I’m so sorry it’s like this. You have no idea what a lucky man I think I am. You are so good to me. I’m so sorry. God, I love you.”
To bring you in the moment, Kate’s had another nightmare and woken up screaming. Martin took off, leaving her to comfort the terrified Malcolm, and now he feels guilty. This conversation occurs over the phone.
