Mother and Son

Note: This is not from Dio’s view at all, she knows nothing of this.

Phone rings from within a small mobile home. A man with an obvious beer belly walks over and answers the phone. “Hello?”
“Dennis? It’s me.”
“Oh, hey Mother. How is it going?”
“Well… I’m in Maine.”
“Oh? Did you guys go on vacation?”
“Actually, Stefini is back in Pennsylvania.”
“W-what? Why?”
“The house was broken into and I was attacked. After I got out of the hospital, she and some of her friends sent me here to recover. She’s staying with some of them.”
“Friends?”
“Well, classmates, I think. Hopefully they are friends now.”
“Mother, I don’t like this… I don’t like her being there without you. She wasn’t the most stable after her mother died.”
“I met two of them. They actually knew her from before she moved in with me. One was from her high school back in Alabama and the other… I’m not sure, but he was a priest-in-trainig and very nice.”
“A priest? That’s weird for her to befriend one, since she has a dislike for most religions…”
“Maybe she likes him? She seemed to talk about him a lot whenever she visited me.”
Dennis sighed before continuing. “I just worry… maybe I’ve been away too long… maybe I should pay her a visit.”
“Dennis, I don’t know if she’s still completely forgiven you for marrying Michelle…”
“I don’t plan on bringing Michelle with me…”
“I guess, just be gentle with her. I think one of her friends is a cop, so you may need to get through her to see Stefini.”
“Oh, just what I need… a f-ing cop…” he muttered. “Alright, I’ll get ready to head out there. Be safe, Mother.”
“You too, Dennis.”
Dennis hung up the phone and sighed. “This is gonna be a long trip…”
