Mom’s eyes widened in fear when she knew she had been caught like an animal in a trap. One false movement and a powerful shock would race through her body, paralyzing her until she submitted.
How many times would it take until mom’s fiery will had been completely obliterated?
I was going to find out.
There! The final piece of the puzzle was complete.
I rubbed my hands excitedly as I watched my mother sleeping peacefully, contentedly. Her life was about to be turned upside-down forever.
A wicked smile ran across my face as I thought about what I was doing. The power dynamics of the house were about to be flipped on their head - with the press of a button...
Mom's eyes flew open and bulged out as a powerful jolt of electricity buzzed through her. She opened her mouth to scream, but nothing came out. Gasping, her hands flew to the source of the pain: the shock collar around her neck.
The more she struggled with it, the harder I pressed the button.
"Stop struggling." I warned her and showed her the remote.
A look of sheer terror crossed mom's face as she pulled one last time on the collar before her hands finally fell to her sides.
