  1. I love that you saw it that way, Paul.
    I think mothers have a whole other version of creepy, and as I was writing this, I thought it was pretty creepy how the mother decided to keep the actions of her daughter a secret, even going so far as to lie to her husband in order to keep Lucy-Lou. What all is she willing to do for Lucy-Lou? I loved that conflict and tension.
    Thanks for reading and commenting.


  2. Erin,

    While I loved the entire piece (in fact I was a tad disappointed that it ended), I think you summed up Mother’s at-any-cost approach to having a child. She knew the dangers, she knew what could happen, yet she was happy to sacrifice others for her own happiness. That’s creepy!!
