Analgesia, by Ann-Louise Truschel

“I’m in so much pain, Marilyn. I can’t deal with it anymore.”

“Linda, we’ve had this conversation before. Get a divorce!”

“I’m terrified Carl will kill me. He’s told me he’d never let me leave him. He’s obsessive about his ‘possessions’, and that’s what he calls me.”

“Carl doesn’t take very good care of his ‘possessions’. He’s hurt you more than once. Carl is the source of your pain. Carl IS your pain.”

“But what can I do?”

“See my friend, Mr. Valetti.”

“How can he help? Can he give me a pain killer?”

“Mr. Valetti IS a pain killer.”
