Jack the Ripper – A Love Story ( Excerpt 65 )

Jack the Ripper – A Love Story ( Excerpt 65 )

  I often wonder how Mary feels now, is she content with her lot as a whore. Or does she wish she were back here, safe with me, but life is full of choices. And alas poor Mary, she made a very poor one, a very poor one indeed and one that will ultimately lead to her demise. But she made the choice, with no doubt a little help from her friends, but her friends are dwindling rapidly. I wonder who she will reach out too, when she is left all alone.

Last night I had, what I can only term as an awkward moment. I had been to see a sick patient at his home, when I was stopped and accosted by three Policemen. They were not local, they had obviously been drafted in from another area. I was detained, a little roughly I might add by two of them, whilst the other set himself up as my inquisitor.

I attempted to explain who I was and that I had been about my legitimate business visiting a sick patient, but they were having none of it. It seemed that they imagined themselves the heroes who had apprehended Jack the Ripper!

The more I protested my innocence, the more certain they seemed of my guilt. As you can probably imagine, a most uncomfortable situation, to say the very least. The two Constables who were holding on too me, quite forcefully, I might add, seemed to think it a fine idea to beat a confession out of me. Whilst I do not fear physical violence, I thought they were letting the situation get out of hand.

  1. Hmmm…your research is amazingly well done… psychopaths generally don’t fear physical pain… mental torture is much more effective on them…
    So interesting work here…!

  2. Very interesting situation.

    The time Jack is out and about for truly legitimate and non-homicidal reasons (seeing a sick patient – i.e. doing his job), that’s when he’s apprehended by police.

    Not when he’s actually butchering someone.

  3. It had to happen, at that time there were lots of extra police drafted to Whitechapel from other Divisions so it is a feasible scenario. I trust that you are feeling a little better after your recent incident my thoughts were with you!

    1. Thank you very much, Malkie my friend.

      My bruise seems to be getting big over my sternum- which is one of the places where he hit me but hopefully that doesn’t mean anything.

      The real problems I’m having these days is with one of my housemates who rents a room in the same house I rent a room in.

      To let you know what a big jerk he is, I modeled my vampire novel character of Brutus Campbell White Supremacist Idiot and Asshole Extraordinaire after him.

      It’s rather psychologically stressful to live in the same house as an extreme racist and bigot.
