The Previous Owner #71


Things came to a head on October 17, 1979:

"Kathy left me. We were making love last night and, I don't know what came over me, I said 'Mother' in the middle of it. She threw me off her, crying and asking what kind of sick monster I was. I tried to explain but she said she didn't want to hear it, that she was taking Maddy and leaving. She packed some things, went to Maddy's room and got her, and jumped in the car and left."

The last line was absolutely horrifying:

"Well, at least I still have Mother."

    Thanks, guys. It's kind of freaking me out writing it. It's going in directions I hadn't even thought about when I first had the idea. If that hadn't already happened with the Jake stories I would really be freaking out.
