When it came to this chapter I had two objectives in mind. The first was to show what a sexist, ignorant, misogynist slob Sheriff Brown is and the second was to show the gradual, well in this chapter, Gaberdeen's rapid descent into madness .
I first had to have someone show they cared about Gaberdeen after she was sadistically abused by her father. Then I had to take that advocate and place her in an adversarial situation with Sheriff Brown. Mission accomplished!
Unfortunately it was a little too late to prevent Gaberdeen from claiming her second victim at the age of six.
Don't forget who her first victim was. You forgot? Go back and read Chapter 1.
"Throwing Stones at a Glass House"
