"But Herc had sacrificed everything for his boy, and Chuck would always hate him for it. Sometimes Herc wanted to sit him down and say, ‘Hey, listen, would you really rather I had let you die so I could save your mother? Is that what you want? Because I pray to any and all gods that have ever existed that you never have to make that choice.’"
