The evening Lori left, she had of course tried to bring Jack along to her parents' in Pensacola. But he had refused, and she was unwilling to force him. So he stood there outside the car while they waited for his father to return. Behind locked doors and rolled-up windows, Lori made a muffled threat to Sam that he'd better take good care of Jack. She swore to return for their son with an officer and a court order. And not five minutes after her taillights faded into the dense Louisiana brush, Sam brought Jack to the casino for the first time, in order to win his mother back.
