Dave’s hopes for rescue layed in his fathers hands. He concidered his father his hero. He would often, at first, try to sneak Dave food and tried defending Dave to his mother. But he was also an alcoholic and eventually grew tired of battling his wife and allowed her to do what she wanted with Dave. When Dave had told his father about the stabbing, Stephan (father) responded by asking why. After being told Dave had been stabbed while doing the dishes, the intoxicated father simply told his son “Well, you ah, go back in there and do the dishes.” It was that moment that Dave realized that no one in his house would or could help him. Eventually, Stephan left the family, allowing his wife to to take her terror on Dave to a higher level.
