Before Cindy's incarceration[]

When Cindy was ten-years-old, during a prayer before eating, she began to eat her food impatiently. This enraged Lucas, who humiliated and rebuked her in front of her entire family. Lucas began quoting the bible to her in fury, and tells her not to sin and demands she say "amen." ("Trust No Bitch")

Six years later, when Cindy reveals she is pregnant, she claims to her parents she does not know who the father is in order to protect him. Lucas sees through her lies, and tells her that he raised her differently than to lie, and demands she tell the truth. When Cindy interrupts Lucas, he becomes angry again. Lillian attempts to calm Lucas down. Lucas calmly walks out and tells Lillian she lets her get away too much. ("Shitstorm Coming")

Memorable Quotes[]

"Do you know what awaits sinners like you, self-worshippers of the flesh? Do you know what is your Promised Land? Answer me, Cindy! Do you know? Deuteronomy, chapter 29, verse 23, tell us about your Promised Land. Your land is brimstone and salt, a burning waste unsown and unproductive, and no grass grows on it, like the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah. So thou must not sin! Amen!"
— Cindy Hayes to a 10-year-old Cindy Hayes ("Trust No Bitch")
"Don't sit in my house, that I pay for, and tell me what I need to know."
— Lucas Hayes to a 16-year-old Cindy Hayes ("Shitstorm Coming")
