“MUUUM! CAN I GO OUT AND PLAY WITH JEZ?”

It didn’t really matter how Georgia’s mum answered; she’d be out the door before any objections could be raised.

“She’s not right in the head,” growled Frank. “Thirteen is too old to have an imaginary friend.” Frank took another swig of Bud and belched.

“She’s sensitive. She needs an outlet.” Even saying that, Janice knew that Frank spoke true about his step-daughter.

Georgia whispered to thin air. “Frank’s horrible.” The air replied, “Don’t worry, sweetie, he’s next.”

Three step fathers in two years. Accidents will happen to very bad men.
