One day I was helping her and she told me that she got her house from her boyfriend who went to jail. I didn’t ask questions because I wasn’t sure if I wanted to know the answers. So sometimes when she would wake my wife and I up at 3:00 AM, I would wonder: where are the gun and the jewels? After some time, I ended up inventing some characters based on my  imaginings.
