Tommie probably picked Lily up off the side of the road. A teenage runaway. You know the story: alcoholic dad, fretful mother. She hates the uncertainty and tension of their den, so she starts staying out late, smoking cigarettes, wearing orange hunting vests just to be provocative. Then one night, at a stag party, she has a drink. And another. And another! She gets home after a late night of partying and sees herself in the mirror and damned if she doesn't see her father staring back, that son of a buck! That's when she runs away. And I guess that's when Tommie found her!
Anyway, that's my theory. I've got it pretty well worked out, so I'm not sure it could be anything else.
