Fallen Hearts


“You are the most dangerous kind of female the world can ever know. You carry the seeds for your own destruction and the destruction of everyone who loves you. And a great many will love you for your beautiful face, for your seductive body; but you will fail them all because you will believe they all fail you first. You are an idealist of the worst kind - the romantic idealist. Born to destroy and self destruct.”

I wish someone would do an biography of VC Andrews. That WOULD be some interesting reading if they could get the real story. I'd bet money she was an ACON. The prettiest ones can fool people the worse too. Her books definitely have an obsession with beauty and revenge which I don't think is too healthy for teens.

Something about that passage and Shelly Duvalls song from pop eye combined just captures my mothers cavalier rapture when it came to men and random sex with strangers, where she never drew the line between her wide eyed romanticism and her duties as a mother and wife. She got more emotional pay off being a disgusting slut than being a decent human being. All the stuff that almost sent her to prison and that drove my father to suicide were justified by her unbridled sense of the romantic and the thrill from being able to make a guy do her bidding.

If you read back I always mention that I knew my mother was off with some new guy because she always took all the pots and pans. Back then I didn't know the score but now I can tell you if some chick meets you at the door with a set of dishes my first advice is to run and not look back.

She could have been a nymphomatic too. Sure seems the type but yeah she had a thrill conquering the men. Yeah run if they show up with the dishes. Yeah that is weird.

I won't say she was a nymphomaniac because if you listened to her words she sounded fairly disgusted by the prospect of sex. She liked the control it gave her over men and she could get them to pay her bills so she didn't have to work. I mean all the murder BS was over $10,000 dollars. I know the dollar was worth way more back then but she still felt entitled to put a price on a mans life and take it so her needs would be met. I think by the time her trial was over we probably paid two dollars out of pocket for each dollar she stole. (they didn't actually steal anything cuz they fucked up and didn't find the money in the trunk of his car. But she didn't mind because the family pitched in so she wouldn't have to spend her life in prison. We did without so she could sit around the house like a teenage girl yakking at her latest crush on the phone. We allowed it ( I don't recall having a choice in the matter) so if we were stupid enough to indulge her she was stupid enough to take it. I heard a comic say isn't a wife just a prostitute with one client. Well she was a prostitute that gave it away for free.
