>> I FINALLY GOT AHOLD OF MY

LITTLE SISTER, LEXIE, AND SHE

AGREED TO MEET FACE-TO-FACE.

I'M ACTUALLY REALLY ANXIOUS TO

SEE HOW THIS IS GONNA TURN OUT.

>> HEY.

THAT'S FOR ME?

HOW ARE YOU?

>> GOOD.

GROWING UP, LEXIE AND I WAS

ALWAYS VERY CLOSE.

BUT THEN SHE STOPPED ANSWERING

MY PHONE CALLS AND DISAPPEARED

OUT OF MY LIFE.

SO THERE MUST BE SOMETHING

REALLY BIG GOING ON FOR HER TO

CALL ME.

I'M JUST SCARED TO KNOW

WHAT IT IS.

>> WHAT'S GOING ON?

>> I'M NOT GONNA SAY I'M NOT

HAPPY THAT YOU CALLED, BUT I

WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED.

WHAT'S GOING ON?

WHAT'S WRONG?

'CAUSE IT'S BEEN YEARS.

I MEAN, WAIT.

IT'S JUST HARD.

I FEARED THAT YOU WOULD EVER

REACH OUT.

>> 'CAUSE I WOULDN'T.

>> NO, I JUST--

>> THERE WAS NO WAY THAT I WAS.

LIKE, FOR WHAT?

BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY, WE DO

HAVE THE SAME FATHER.

>> SO IT'S DAD.

>> AND YOUR--

>> IT'S DAD?

>> YEAH, HE LOST HIS APARTMENT.

HE GOT KICKED OUT.

>> WAIT.

>> YEAH.

>> STOP.

I SPEAK TO DAD ON A REGULAR

BASIS, SO I'M NOT UNDERSTANDING

RIGHT NOW.

>> SOMETIMES PEOPLE CAN'T ASK

YOU FOR ANYTHING, TAHIRY.

YOU'RE CAUGHT UP IN YOUR OWN

[bleep], DOING YOUR OWN THINGS.

AND YOU'RE STRESSED.

EVERY RELATIONSHIP YOU'RE IN,

WE LOSE YOU, WHICH IS FINE.

I DON'T--

>> THAT'S HOW YOU FEEL?

>> WELL, WHEN YOU WERE WITH JOE,

IT WAS ONLY ABOUT JOE.

YOU PICKED JOE OVER EVERYBODY'S

RELATIONSHIP BECAUSE NOBODY

REALLY LIKED YOU AND JOE

TOGETHER.

SINCE YOU WANT TO STAY WITH JOE,

IT WAS, "[bleep] LEXIE,"

BECAUSE YOU KNOW LEXIE AIN'T--

DON'T THINK YOU AND JOE

BELONG TOGETHER!

SO AFTER A WHILE, IT WAS JUST

LIKE, "I GOT TO TAKE IT FOR WHAT

IT IS.

THAT'S WHERE SHE WANTS TO BE.

I'M OUT."

>> HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN

FEELING THIS WAY?

IT'S BEEN FIVE YEARS.

>> YOU HAVEN'T--

YOU GOT TO UNDERSTAND THE REASON

WHY IT'S BEEN FIVE YEARS IS

BECAUSE IT WASN'T SUPPOSED TO BE

JUST FIVE YEARS.

IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE FOREVER.

THAT'S WHAT YOU DON'T GET.

>> A FEW YEARS AGO, LEXIE AND I

GOT IN A REALLY BAD ARGUMENT.

IT FELT LIKE LEXIE DIDN'T LIKE

MY RELATIONSHIP WITH JOE.

IT FELT LIKE A LITTLE SISTER WHO

MISSED AN OLDER SISTER WHO THE

CHANGE CAME OUT

OF NOWHERE MAYBE,

'CAUSE I DIDN'T NEGLECT MY

SISTER, BUT SHE FELT THAT WAY.

AND EVERYBODY'S ENTITLED TO

THEIR OWN FEELINGS.

I THINK THAT SISTERS HAVE

DISAGREEMENTS EVERY [bleep]

DAY OF THEIR LIVES, BUT IT'S NOT

WORTH ALL THIS TIME.

>> IT'S NOT EVEN ABOUT THAT.

I CAN'T CALL YOU FOR NOTHING.

I CAN'T CALL YOU FOR NOTHING.

>> YES, YOU CAN!

>> NO, I CAN'T, TAHIRY.

>> YES, YOU CAN!

>> I CAN'T CALL YOU FOR

ANYTHING!

>> YES, YOU CAN!

>> I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH--

>> YES, YOU CAN!

>> AND I DON'T TRUST THAT

YOU'LL--I DON'T HAVE NOTHING.

>> WHY?

>> I CAN'T EXPECT ANYTHING FROM

YOU.

>> WHY?

>> I CAN'T REACH OUT TO YOU.

>> WHY?

>> BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT THERE!

>> THAT'S HOW YOU FEEL.

LIKE, WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO DO?

MAYBE I FAILED.

LIKE, I FEEL--MAYBE--

>> YOU TALK A GOOD, BUT YOU--

>> NO!

>> YOU DON'T DO [bleep].

I JUST WANT A SISTER.

THAT'S IT.

>> IT KILLS ME TO LISTEN TO HOW

LEXIE FELT ABOUT ME BEING WAY

TOO ABSORBED INTO MY

RELATIONSHIP WITH JOE.

THIS REALLY MAKES ME REALIZE HOW

MUCH I'VE SACRIFICED

FOR HIS ASS.

I KNOW I'VE MADE MISTAKES,

BUT I'M GLAD THAT LEXIE FINALLY

REACHED OUT.

THIS GIVES ME THE CHANCE TO FIX

MY RELATIONSHIP WITH MY SISTER.

I'M HERE.

I'M HERE.

AND I NEVER LEFT.

AND I NEVER WANT TO HURT YOU.

AND I'M HERE.

AND IT'S BEEN A WHILE.

AND I'M SORRY.

>> THIS SUCKS.

IT SO SUCKS, LIKE--

>> GIVE ME A HUG.

I'M HERE, THOUGH.

I'M HERE, AND I'VE BEEN HERE.

>> JUST SHUT UP.

JUST SHUT UP.

>> GIVE ME A HUG.

PLEASE.

IT'S HARD.

AND I KNOW THAT I'VE FAILED YOU

SOME WAY OR ANOTHER, BUT I THINK

WE HAVE PLENTY OF TIME TO FIGURE

THAT OUT AND FIX IT.

MM.

PLEASE DON'T CRY ANYMORE.
