Therapy Is Nice…But Screaming FUCK For 10 Seconds Is A lot Faster And Cheaper.


Our plan is as follows: Everyday around 8 A.M. Ash walks from his and Evelyn’s apartment to the police headquarters. Aaron will be hiding approximately 100 yards away ready to shoot the sedatives into Ash’s butt. Ash being the gigantic person he is, it will take a major dose to sedate him. Another factor is who knows how the transfusions have affected his system. To be on the safe side Aaron loaded up as many as twelve syringes, just to be prepared. We will secure a large net covered with dirt. Ash would then walk onto the net and as soon as he felt the needles, he should stop. We would then hoist him above the souvenir shop and let him hang in the air until the serum sets in. We decided the day after tomorrow would be the best time. This will allow Evelyn to come to terms with whatever she needs to come to terms with. Her emotions for the most part run the gamete including guilt, frustration, anger, you name it. If this works we can turn things around and perhaps build a more accommodating environment. Otherwise we are screwed. If we do succeed there is only one aspect of this plan that hasn’t been discussed. Now that we have him what do we do with him? But first we have to trap him. Once this is done then we can decide.

We have settled on a name for the Petropolis, Ludwigshafen. It’s an actual town in Germany outside of Mannheim. Ludwigshafen happens to be one of the most visually unappealing places on earth. It was one of those cities that was bombed during World War Two and rebuilt on a grid. The Petropolis is built very much the same way. Since our sponsor is corporate, they like to employ their own architects and designers and fit into some generic mold that is less than charming. My grandfather’s given name was Ludwig and he too was anything but charming. So the name is appropriate.

Stay tuned…
