Dorian #3

So yes, he knew The Picture Of Dorian Gray intimately. Which is probably why last summer he’d looked at the portrait and wondered if it had become slightly less… well, yes, slightly less hideous. A portrait that changes? How utterly ridiculous! It was obviously something to do with having just read Wilde’s story again, Chris reasoned. And then forgot about it.

Two months later Chris was so convinced something was happening to the portrait that he counted those disgusting pustules on the old man’s neck. Seven. A week after that there were six.
There!
Tangible proof the portrait was changing!
