Road to revenge

Cheri was a stripper, when she met her husband, Spike.  Spike was a biker and a customer at the strip joint where Cheri worked.  She got pregnant soon after they met, and she convinced him to marry her.  Cheri quit being a stripper, but Spike didn’t quit going to the strip clubs.  Their marriage lasted for a few years, but after the son they had together died in a horrible accident, things began to fall apart, and Spike got into gambling,   Spike was never the same; things were never the same.  After maxing out credit cards, and then losing their home, Cheri filed for divorce and moved away.

After the divorce, Cheri was going to move out of state with her daughter, Megan, to begin a new life.  Being homeless they ended up sleeping at the side of the road, and were abducted, but after some struggles and a couple days later, got away.

After that, Cheri was able to get help for herself and her daughter, and eventually started working at a local truck stop café as a waitress, where Cheri met Jim.  Cheri soon moved in with Jim, but while she was off working, Jim was after Megan, who was a good looking young teenager, wanting to be her pimp.  The money attracted Megan and she ended up being a teenage hooker.  When Cheri found out, she was furious with Jim and with Megan.  Megan ran away, Cheri became sick with grief, which made life miserable for Jim and for her.  Oftentimes, she would not get out of bed, and refused to do anything.  Suddenly Cheri passed away, and Jim was suspected of drugging her, although it couldn’t be proven, as Jim was quite clever in covering his tracks.  The body was cremated almost immediately, so an autopsy was never done.

Sample text:

Things came to head when Aiden was a year old, and instead of showing up for his son’s first birthday, he stayed out until the wee hours of the next morning and got home drunk.  Cheri sat in the darkness on the sofa and waited up for him.  She was ready to have an argument after having continuously keeping quiet.  If it wasn’t for the fact that he had missed the entire day of his son’s first birthday, she would have probably swept his behavior under the rug as she had been doing for the past several months.

“Where have you been?” she asked as coolly as she could when Spike came in and turned on the light in the living room.

He blinked a few times as his eyes adjusted to the light, and he realized that she was sitting on the sofa.

“Cheri?  What are ya doin’ up, baby?” he slurred.

He was obviously drunk and to make matters worse, Cheri could make out what looked like a lipstick stain on the collar of the crumpled white shirt he was wearing.  As he came closer to touch her, she wrinkled her nose and got up from the sofa.  Not only did he reek of alcohol, but she detected the smell of stale sex on him and cringed.

“Don’t you dare touch me, you bastard,” she yelled.

She was not worried about waking up Megan or Aiden because they were with Maureen.  She had taken them to Maureen’s apartment after it became obvious that Spike would not be home to help cut his son’s birthday cake that she had baked.  It wasn’t a party, but she had cooked a huge dinner along with the cake and hoped that all four of them could sit and enjoy a meal as a family while celebrating Aiden’s birthday.  With him not even answering his phone, Cheri had decided enough was enough.
