From the text:
Johnny opened his eyes. At first they were wide with surprise, then they darkened. "I don't want to see her," he said firmly.
"She's your mother."
"I said I don't want to see her." His voice was rising. "She's probably come to tell me about all the trouble I'm causing her and about how glad her and the old man'll be when I'm dead. Well, tell her to leave me alone. For once"--his voice broke--"for once just to leave me alone."
