The dog heard him coming before I did she woke out of deep sleep on the rug and was completely alert and whining at the door. I knew this day was coming, but I had hoped it never would. I hoped he would do something in prion that would keep him there long enough for me to die on my own.
But, I could see him coming up the walk. He was here and he was ready to make good on his promise.
When I turned him in, he told me he would kill me. His own mother.
I heard the key turn in the lock and I knew it was over. My time had come.
