"The past catches up with the Kid. Hardly had a moment’s rest since all this started. Fair to say he’s lived a hard life, supposin’ what he says in his sleep ain’t no lie. He never knew his old man, but he had his momma to take care of. Frail thing, with pure white hair like his. Havin’ his momma’s hair did the Kid no favors when he was growin’ up, but he learned to hold his own out there."
