She answered him with, "Because if who my dad is..." She pauses, "A gang banging, drug selling, selfish who thinks he can get away with hurting people... Including me and my mom... He never hurt us physically but he hurt us emotionally by leaving one night and never coming back." Eddie held back tears.
