When Philip was seventeen he murdered a policeman. They’d been having an affair. The policeman was the uncle of Philip’s boyfriend, Scott.

Philip had fallen in love with the policeman but the relationship had quickly turned abusive. The policeman threatened to hurt Philip, and have him arrested on trumped up drug possession charges, if he didn’t perform certain demeaning sexual acts. Philip feared for his future and even his life so he poisoned the policeman’s coffee with a powerful compound.

Philip broke up with Scott when he left to study chemistry at University. He didn’t want a long distance relationship.

    Thank you for the kind words, Chloe! I'm not familiar with the film you mentioned; I'll have to look it up. :-)

    Strange that Chloe should say it reminded her of a movie. For some reason for me it unfolded in black and white, like a 50s drama, Joe Orton or the like. Brilliant drabble Horrorshow, loved it.

    Very good! Sometimes enough can't be said in 100 words. This is a story that I would like to learn more of.
