Ten years wiser. I’ve actually had to convince some girls at the casino to be smarter. As far as Sydney goes, I’d have done everything I could to stop her. The business operated out of Los Angeles, actually, about a six-hour ride out. I’d have driven it. I’d also offer her a place to stay, of course, but it wasn’t about desperation for her.
She wanted to be a high-class escort, she enjoyed making money. This is awesome, but it’s so dangerous. And as for my boss, I had a LOT of influence — he trusted me because I rain his business pretty much. I should’ve fought harder or told him I’d walk if he didn’t protect the girls.
This is why age is so important. We think we know what we’re doing out there but no one has a clue. She was a really good person who would’ve done great things.
