All about the choices that Erik makes and how it all impacts paul.
There are many choices and consequences Erik Fisher (Paul's brother) has done many choices that affected Paul negatively.
You’re going to have to pay for what you did”’ (Bloor 263).‘“You’re going to have to pay for telling on Castor. You told who spray painted on the wall, and Castor got into trouble. Castor doesn't like getting into trouble
Erik Fisher was in elementary school and was always mean to his brother Paul so Erik thought Paul told his friend for spray painting the garage door. The quote is important because the choice of Erik pinning Paul down and spray painting his eyes result in Paul being blind. That choice made Paul forget everything that happens at that age so Paul would have flashbacks if it gets triggered.
PS... Paul got bodied
I remembered walking into our garage and hearing Erik’s voice, cold and menacing...then I felt Erik grab me from behind, easily pinning both of my arms with one of his…and I remembered Erik’s fingers prying my eyelids open while Vincent Castor sprayed white paint on them
Later in the book Paul has a flashback of when he was five years old and came into the garage because he couldn’t find his friends. After he went into the garage he found Erik and his goon with a bottle of spray paint talking about how his friend doesn't like getting in trouble so Erik grabs Pauls' arms and his goon spray painted Paul's eyes
making him legally blind. Paul can’t remember anything after that but he has recurring flashbacks showing he is getting his memory back a little.
