My uncle is a convicted rapist who had just been released from jail. He turns up in my bedroom one night to tell me he is in the mood for the incestuous rape of his eighteen year old virgin niece.
A sex maniac, a deviant, an animal, a beast, a brute, a savage, an all out monster…and a rapist. I had heard my uncle called pretty much everything over the years. I did have a memory of him before the day that the police arrived and took him away. Mom had told me at the time that it was for the ‘bad things’ that he had done. Now of course, I knew that the ‘bad things’ he had done were too rape two eighteen year old college students. His sentence was seven years in prison. Seven years in prison for raping two women, that’s what was called justice in this country. They ought to have locked him up and thrown away the key. “Where’s Uncle Todd going to go mom?” I asked. “Far away from here. As far as I am concerned, he’s no brother of mine, and your father has a shotgun at the ready on the off chance he should ever appear around here. That man is a pervert and a rapist, and he shall never set foot in this household again.”
