Does Father feel we're killing him?

So why did Harrison try to kill me? Has Father been propagandizing against me to him? Seems like the only explanation...

Does Father feel we're killing him?

The days of our stay at Canyon Manoir are wonderful, now that Harrison and Mary have left.

Mother and Father have decided that there shall be no more family vacations, seeing as there are just too many undercurrents and differences of opinion, to live together in peace.

I do wonder though why Harrison acted like he should be here to protect Father from us.

I ask Father but become none the wiser. He has no complaints.

Harrison in his fit of rage mumbled something about someone as old as me "still living with his parents". Father never told me he has any problems with my living on Tower Hills. It's not really "living with my parents", seeing as we have a big enough estate with enough buildings and rooms to be living apart enough.

And Father always said he appreciates my being there so that they can live a little safer, whatwith the political left killing farmers left and right for being "land owners".

I'm certainly no financial burden on Father, and we could talk about it if I were.

Did Father now propagate against me to Harrison? Why did Harrison go mad and try to take me on?

I can only think that Harrison took bits of information and constructed a parrallel reality in which we're monsters who are going to kill his father and under whom Father is suffering day and night.

Examples of such bits of information can be the time Petros almost killed himself and Father with that car towing on a trailer accident thing. And Mother years ago having helped Petros with money that Father gave her with the impression that she was spending it on groceries. And my eating at Mother and Father's table at Tower Hills, being a burden for their account or something.

So Father, Mother and I talk about some kind of possibility, first of my paying them rent and then of contributing an amount of money monthly so they can buy food, but the whole thing seem stupid and unnecessary after about a minute or so. We're family and Father affirms that he has no problem with my being there really. And besides, why are we doing this now? Because Harrison, who isn't really part of our arrangements, injected his overtly strong unasked-for opinion on the matter, in such a brutish, animalistic way?

We decide to drop it until a later time, whenever.

Petros however gets a little too chatty. He wants to come and tell us how we should do it. But we ignore him. He's got a big mouth now that after 16 years, he has started paying a very small rent to Mother with whom he jointly bought the house he's been living in for free all these years. Now he wants everybody to pay rent and whatnot because of some silly irrelevant "rules of life" or whatever nonsense.

Well I still think Father vented his frustrations to Harrison when Father was in bad moods, and that Harrison took it all out of proportion as that Father is suffering day in and out under our monstrous oppression.

But we're fine really. At any rate Father has no intentions of kicking me out or starting to wish I wasn't there, as Harrison seems to be indicating.

Mother says she believes it's Harrison's wife, Mary, who is poisoning him against us.
