lillian came in they saw her playing with the toys and asked he where did she get it from and she said that her brother gave it to her so

that they cant do nything about it because when george was beating lillian not one of them came to make a report so they should jus let it go.
When george came out of the hospital lillian took care of him untill he was well,soon after he started drinking again and the problems
