Connor never made a conscious decision to get drunk. If he had, he would have found a harder, faster way to oblivion than this.
Unfortunately, wine is the only alcohol he can find in the flat, so he pours a glass and starts to drink.
He drinks until he’s no longer sure whether the aim is to punish himself, or to make the pain stop. He’s not sure if the difference even matters.
Lester finds him like this several hours later. His eyes hold unexpected understanding.
Connor doesn’t ask questions when Lester takes out a second glass and joins him.
