"Nail to a DoubleTree and left to Die and Bleed...
"The Hollow One"
...
"The year was 1924 and John Byrne had a Dream...
"To start a family, own, a house, and be set for Life?"
...
"No more would he labor in those dirty mines of Illinois."
"No."
"And, he got himself a real job in town."
"And, he found himself a girl named Katie Lee!"
...
"Yes, and they fell in love as if under some 'Mystic Spell!'
"And for a Time?"
"Everything was well."
...
"The kids came before the house but that was okay because they ate more like a mouse!"
"He built a small cabin in the Heart of the woods and worked the land like any good Father should."
...
"For a Time, yes they were Blessed."
"His job provided enough...
"Yes, more than enough for those particular things."
"While he worked the Land for the more necessary ones."
...
"A Life of Bliss?"
"Kissed by Destiny and Fate?"
"More or less...
"Time well-worn...
"Time not so secure....
"Time ignored...
"And, time was ungrateful as could ever be?"
"For, lurking in her past?"
"And, right within Satan's Grasp?"
"Lies Destiny...
...
"You see, no more or less...
"No matter how much sometimes you are so Blessed...
"Yes, sometimes the World works in mysterious ways...
"And, at best...
...
"For Katie Lee had a past that she kept to herself."
"And, at long last?"
"It caught up to John Byrne."
"And, the mold was cast!"
...
"So, tied to the DoubleTree with not one but three...
"And, it was bleeding him dry...
"And, soon...
"Yes."
"Very, very, soon...
"John would most definitely die."
...
"But you see?"
"This is not the end!"
"And, soon...
"Yes!"
"Very, very, soon...
"You will see?"
