The knock sends arrows of dread shooting through my body and the sound of a train begins to grow in my head. Mary and “the crew,” with their trucks and their cameras, are early. Although Mary was a weak-willed child that was easy to control, she’s grown up to be just like her dearly departed mother; loving, but bossy.
Mary started watching, “Hoarders” on TV and is convinced they can help her help me. Doesn’t she realize every item in this house is a memory of her mother?
Mary watches the trucks fill and thinks, “we’re finally rid of her.”
