Lily is lead to believe, mostly by T-Ray, that she killed her mother. Lily is plagued by guilt. She dreams that,
"That night I lay in bed and thought about dying and going to be with my mother in paradise. I would meet her saying, "Mother, forgive. Please forgive," and she would kiss my skin till it grew chapped and tell me I was not to blame. She would tell me this for the first ten thousand years."
