Section 2 At 20minutes to 9 on my wedding day, I received that letter, from a man that I loved so much. He had left me. I was humiliated and heartbroken. I stopped all the clocks in this house at that exact point to learn of my betrayal. From that day I had no purpose to live. Since then, I remained in this decaying mansion, not knowing anything from the outside.

Do not expect no more, Mother. ...read more.
