It was pretty obvious that he and his stepdad didn’t get along

“It was pretty obvious that he and his stepdad didn’t get along. I just attributed that, at the time, to that natural inherent resentment a lot of kids have towards their stepparents. The ‘you’re not my dad’ thing. Charlie did come off as an authority figure. Charlie would be like, ‘No, you can’t come out and play this weekend, you have to stay and mow the yard.’ I remember it being a bone of contention more  than it should be, and Steve being just ‘grr’ about it. I think about that time I remember Steve becoming an anti-authoritarian. That was probably how a lot of kids felt about their stepparents. I remember a couple of conversations where he specifically was angry at Charlie but it was nothing at the time I construed as exceptional.”
