The Old Man
This is based on a true story. A friend of ours took an old relative (his wife's uncle) to a senior care home last weekend. The old man was afraid to stay alone and asked our friend to stay with him. It turns out, Uncle Dom was a child molester - he'd abused his brothers and sister, his children, niece and nephew. None of the family had spoken out against him, in spite of the abuse being "known". At this point he denies any memory of doing the things they say he did. Our friend feels sickened by him, yet also had a kind of pity for him at the same time.Pays one point and 2 member cents.
