He always knew that the day he stopped going to Ralphs Underhills house, that would be the day the friendship would be over. Doug wanted to know how much of a friend Ralph was, but when he found out things didn't turn out so well. In ways Ralph did the worst thing he could possibly do to doug; he beat his self worth up.
Somewhere on a country road he just ley down and wept and want4ed to die. Sometimes it seemed as if doug didn't know what to do after the relationship between Ralph and him ended. When dealing with things, in his mind the world was ending, and soon after and empty space formed in his heart. When doug killed the anger in him, it was the perfect murder because it killed what doug wanted to go away, and it didn't harm anyone.
