Would you lie for him?

So I got home after working 12 hours today. I park in this public lot across the street from my building. It was already dark when I got home. I stepped out of the car, grabbed my tools and as I was turning around I heard his voice.

The guy who stole that stuff from me last week was in the lot. I wondered for a moment if this was it, if I was going to have to stomp him. I'm much bigger than he is physically, and in better shape.

He asked when he could come over to return my stuff, I said this evening would be fine. Him and his girlfriend split for home to pack up all the shit I'd lent him.

So I walked to the package store and bought a sixpack to enjoy the insanity with. His girlfriend has decided I'm the devil for ratting her thief boyfriend out to god and everyone under the sun. Now, I imagine someday she'll realize he could have avoided the embarrassment by not stealing in the first place, but she's quite young and hasn't developed mentally to the point where her feelings and her convictions are kept in separate compartments. Who she loves is right, no matter what they do.

So they return, her making sure to keep between me and him. All the things I've lent him over the year or so I've known him get moved into my apartment again. As they left I spoke to him. You brought this on yourself. They curse me with their backs turned as they walk away.

It's weird how her loyalty to him is so strong when I'm sure inside she knows he stole from me. I don't think I've got that kind of loyalty in me, maybe once upon a time. I've noticed other people have that too, where they love someone so much that they're blind to their deceit and moral transgressions.
