The messages stopped and Louis figured that his parents expected him to call them. Ha!
Days, weeks, now months, and he was not going to break. If they thought that they would ever get him to crawl to them, well, they could wait.

Unlike Louis, whose parents were surgeons and could have sent him to the finest college if he had wanted.
