I slowly descended back on to my cot, but made a point not to sit too close to her. Then I told her about, how it seems, I came to be. I explained to her that though I had a mother, I never really had a chance to meet her, and that there was no way to know who exactly my father could be, even though Fred had a few guesses. I explained that I was not the offspring of the usual process of courting, or conception, or birth. I was something completely different.

Lisa stood under the porch light and sipped on a cup of coffee as she stared out in the street watching the wind blow the leaves in a whirlwind. It was cold out, but Lisa couldn’t bear to go back inside just yet. She turned and looked through the window at the crowd of people hovering over Rebecca and her mother trying to convey a sense of understanding and sympathy. Teddy had run off somewhere to get drunk, a skill he’d never really mastered. Paul watched over Teddy as he forced grain alcohol down his throat until he could no longer hold the bottle.

Eternal Curse: Giovanni’s Angel chapter 8.2 (wip)

Back when I thought we would be married, I allowed him to become a partner in some of my business endeavors. My research foundation exists as two distinct entities. One focuses on the study of the human condition, to which my private practice is managed under, and the other is unlimited in its ambitions.

My ex is trying to shut me out of, at least part of, my own company. He’s trying to conduct tests that go well beyond the guidelines of proper human research set forth by every major intellectual mind in the past century. He wants to use my resources to justify and perform his experiments. The thing that bothers me most, is that I don’t think he’s even that dedicated to his psychotic pursuits. I mostly think he’s angry at the world and he’s angry with me. He’s trying to hurt me for leaving him.

“Do you mind if I ask how old you really are? I figured from the moment I saw you that you weren’t actually a child, but that you just happen to look like one.”

I sighed a bit and began to explain. “I wish it were that simple. The truth is I am about fifty years old. When Fred found me, I hadn’t been around that long. He used his memory capturing abilities to help me remember and know who I was and where I came from. It is because of my very unusual origins, and the nature of my curse, that I have to always be supervised.”

“It’s actually a funny story,” she said as Rebecca helped her sit up. “When Rebecca was born, Lucy fell in love with her. She treated her like a doll and spoiled her rotten. Any chance she could get, she’d sneak up to Rebecca’s ear and repeat Aunty Lucy over and over,” said Ms. Rapture with a tearful smile on her face. “It drove George Tinsdale mad, which only made the whole thing funnier. It became a competition between the two of them to see which name Rebecca would call out first.

In spite of their best efforts, Rebecca’s first words were mama and booboo,” said Ms. Rapture looking over her at daughter. “Booboo was her favorite toy at the time, but the completion wasn’t over between George and Lucy.
