He had lived most of his life keeping secrets out of necessity. Now that it was no longer necessary, though, Matt found that some habits were hard to break.

Habits like not showing emotion. Like never revealing more information than he had to. Like not letting people in.

Sometimes he caught the way Becker would look at him, or question him in the field, as if the man was constantly wondering if there was something Matt might be keeping back.

Matt wanted to change, to open up and regain his friend’s trust.

Unfortunately, the saying about old habits was true.
