The Ornament

By Tessa Dean July 2021

*********************

Patty was getting crazy looks from the people watching her walking her cat down the sidewalk on a leash. She had to admit it was kind of crazy, especially with all the snow on the sidewalk that was almost as tall as her cat, but she continued walking Taffy.

As she approached a tree, she saw a single ornament hanging on one of the branches. Unfortunately, she was only visiting and couldn’t go home for some more holiday ornaments, so she headed for the local dollar store and bought several boxes of ornaments, and came back and decorated the tree.

**********Eileen’s POV**********

Eileen told Kyle that she had the requisite rules for the rape examination explained to her last night at the hospital, and then the police report she had filed at the police station was also explained. Still, they didn’t follow those procedures very well.

She had to wait hours in the hospital emergency room for the exam to take place, and that one of the nurses had been a male, and he smirked at her and had to be thrown out. Then she had to wait at the police station while they finished arresting some guys selling drugs.

**********98 words for the weekend prompt**********

**********Story Continued**********

Eileen began to cry again while Kyle surveyed the vast sky of stars and then wondered why this had to happen to Eileen who was the greatest girl in the world. It was getting cold and they didn’t have jackets with them so he held her closer. He had never pried about her past and she had never asked about his. If he had any illusions that she was virgin he could forget that thought now.

He dried her tears while she got herself under control. He wondered how many times that bold, vile, creep had violated her. It would all come out at the trial provided she didn’t back out when she had to testify in front of him. He hoped she had the courage to see it out and that she didn’t get too banged up while they tried to set him up so they could catch him in action. He knew that the professor was sly and he wondered if he would be smart enough to figure out what they had in mind.

Jack and Scott had remained in Scott’s den talking about what route they should try. They had to lure him to her and have him mad enough that he tries to rape her again. He seems to do it when he is mad at her. Preferably without beating her first. She said the last time he had beaten her till she passed out and then she woke up during the rape. They didn’t want that to happen. They just wanted him to attempt to rape her and then they would burst in. But there were no guarantees. The detective had to sell her on his current idea tomorrow morning.

***

Detective Fisher cast about for the best way to break his idea to her and Kyle. They would arrive shortly at the Callan’s house. It was the best place to meet. Once they arrived, Sarah brought them to the den. The dog was already outside because they remembered her fear of the dog.

For lack of a better idea, Jack said they wanted her to call the professor and tell him she needed to talk to him about this grade he gave her. She knew it wasn’t a zero. His hope was that he would offer to meet her and if she had sex with him he would give her the A it deserved. She would agree, but when he got to her apartment she would refuse to give him sex. They hoped he would get mad and try to rape her and when she was close to being fully raped she would yell “cow” and they would rush in with cameras and hopefully get him about to rape her. Hopefully he would not try to beat her first. If he did she was to immediately play like he knocked her out and hopefully he would continue to the rape and stop beating her. However, if he continued to beat her than she was to yell “cow” and they would stop there. They would have to hope the other women’s stories would be enough to put him behind bars. They were still trying to call them all and convince as many as possible since they had one woman ready to testify.

***

Eileen was nervous. It was almost time for the professor to arrive. The knock at the door almost caused her to scream. She let him in, he stomach churning. “How beautiful and sexy you are tonight,” he told her. she remained silent. “So I understand you don’t believe you deserve a zero for a grade. Like I told you I would change it to an A if you have sex with me tonight.”

Eileen refused and the professor grabbed her by the shirt and ripped it open, buttons flying everywhere. He shoved her onto the couch and started to yank her shorts off. She bided her time. He didn’t attempt to hit her. It seemed like he wanted her to be conscious for this one. He reached down and unzipped his shorts and pushed them off and then he tore her panties off. She yelled “cow” and in rushed the police with cameras and guns. The professor looked at her and went to strike her, but Detective Fisher got to her in time to prevent him from hitting her. He was told to pull up his pants and then he was handcuffed and dragged out of the room, shouting, “You bitch.”

***

The day of the trial, the professor appeared older than normal. It appeared that jail didn’t set well with him. Eileen and Kyle were there and very nervous. The detective didn’t mention whether any of the other women had showed up to testify and no one else was in the courtroom.

The trial started and Eileen gave her testimony and the shots from the cameras showed him in action. It was definitely a rape scene. As her testimony ended, Eileen heard sounds behind her. There were about ten women, each accompanied by someone, which Eileen then found out were ten of the other women he attacked and their lawyers. With someone leading the way they found the strength to follow her lead and testify against the professor too.

One of them was the sister of his deceased wife. She testified to everything her sister had ever told her about their relationship and that she was sure he had beaten her and raped her just like he did with her and all these other women.

The professor was denying that he had done anything to anybody. He was being set up, but each one had a police report with a date in the past of when each woman had been attacked and they also found multiple complaints from his wife about domestic violence. He was found guilty of all the attacks and the homicide of his wife, who coincidentally was named Eileen as well.

The women, all crying, surrounded Eileen and thanked her for being strong enough to take the professor on and giving them the strength to testify as well. The monster was finally off the streets and he was sentenced to death by electric chair since his wife had lived in a state that had the death penalty.

Written by Tessa Dean July 2021

After filing out the police report for the rape, Detective Fisher took the two women back to the Callan house. When they got there they found both Kyle and Scott Callan asleep in the den with the twins in their playpen asleep. They must have woken up again so Scott brought them into the den with them. Then all four fell asleep.

Eileen woke up Kyle and whispered to him that they had to go now. She was done for now, but tomorrow they had to meet up with the detective while he laid out the plan to capture the professor and get him locked up.

Kyle drove them home since Eileen had been up all night with no sleep. He dropped her off at her apartment and then headed to his. He would pick her up tomorrow and drive her to the police station so the plan could be worked out as soon as possible.

The nurses and Sarah tried to calm Eileen down. “Listen honey, I know you feel we are prying into your private areas, but we have to get the items to test. Please relax and just concentrate on holding Sarah’s hand,” Cynthia said. “The area is kind of dry, but hopefully we can get some semen to test. And if it matches the semen on the panties, all the better.”

Eileen was crying softly and Sarah handed her a tissue to wipe her eyes.

“We’re almost done now and then we will take the pictures. That part won’t hurt. The bruises are pretty dark and will stand out on the photos nicely.”

“You know what irks me besides the whole rape and beating is that he ruined my favorite panties.”

Sarah glanced at them and smiled. “I can see what you mean. They sure are pretty. When this is over we can go shopping and find some new ones that won’t remind you of him.”

The Ring Part 16 (Part 1Part 2Part 3Part 4Part 5Part 6Part 7Part 8Part 9Part 10Part 11Part 12Part 13Part 14, Part 15)

Written by Tessa Dean July 2021

All was quiet in the car until the detective broke the silence with a question to Eileen, “Are you wearing the same panties that you wore after the professor raped you?”

Startled, Eileen, asked, ” Why?”

“We need them for testing unless you washed them already.”

“No, I still have them although they are in the trash. I will never wear them again. My lingerie bill is high with all these rapes. This has gone on for months now. Sometimes twice a month. It’s a terrible reason to have to buy new lingerie.” Eileen began to cry again. “I will take you to my apartment so you can have them. I won’t touch them, but I can give you a zipper-locked bag if you need one.”

“I have an evidence bag for them.”

Once they picked up the panties, they headed to the hospital. Sarah held her hand the whole time.

Eileen entered the exam room with trepidation. There were two nurses there, one female and one male. Why would they have a man there for such an intimate examination? The man had a sly smirk on his face. The woman caught it and ordered him out of the room. “I will deal with you later. I can’t believe you would treat her like that. What is wrong with you. I knew I should have kept you out of the room, but since you were second in charge tonight I decided to follow protocol, but in this case, a man’s condescending smile is not needed. The woman needs compassion which you obviously aren’t capable of. Send Cynthia in here now!”

Once Cynthia had arrived, they told Sarah and Eileen what was about to happen. They told them both, “This is a very invasive 2-4 hour plus exam. We’re doing pubic hair pulls or combs, we’re doing swabs of the outside of the genitalia… and then we’re doing a speculum exam, which is internal, and taking swabs that way, and if there was an anal assault we’re doing swabs there. And then we use a colposcope which is a specialized medical camera to take pictures of genital injury.” After giving Eileen time to absorb what she had just been told, they asked her, “Do you want your friend to stay with you for support. This can be rough.”

Eileen looked at Sarah and said, “Please stay with me. I am frightened.”

“Of course I will stay with you if you want me to. That is why I came along. I figured you wouldn’t want to be alone and you don’t have your own mother here, so I am happy to step in and help you in any way I can.”

“Since this happened yesterday I would definitely have to assume that you have gone to the bathroom so hopefully you changed your underwear and kept it,” the nurse said.

“Yes, I gave it to the detective. Didn’t he bring it in?”

“Hold on and let me see. OK, yes he left it here so we can test it in case you no longer have any trace of it inside of you, but inside of you is best because the underwear could be from anyone.”

“It happened last night and I don’t pee often so hopefully you can get it off of both and that way we can be sure.”

“We need to have this on file. If we are lucky than we can find him in CODIS.”

“Oh he’s done it before, but none of the women would file charges against him and go all the way through the process. They filed a rape charge, but refused to go before the court. I am trying to stop this lunatic besides I am tired of being raped over and over. He also beats me so I am covered with bruises.”

“Oh, I am so sorry honey. Well I hope we can find the evidence needed, but you still have to prove rape. Did you take any drugs that we might find in your body?”

“No, he just knocked me about until I was unconscious and then raped me. I would wake up during the rape and then he would leave with a warning not to mention this to anyone or he would kill me. We’re pretty sure he killed is wife.”

“Oh honey. OK, I will go as easy as I can, but this won’t be fun and I am sorry if I hurt you. We’ll also be taking pictures.” They asked Sarah her name and had her come over and stay next to her and hold her hand while they started.

The Ring Part 15 (Part 1Part 2Part 3Part 4Part 5Part 6Part 7Part 8Part 9Part 10Part 11Part 12Part 13, Part 14)

By Tessa Dean July 2021

Detective Jack Fisher looked up at the vast sky as if asking for a prayer from God. In a way he was. He didn’t want Eileen to back out, but the more he said the more she bacame cast as a role of a victim, which she was, but he wanted a spunky Eileen, the one Sarah and Scott Callan told him about who had arrived there earlier that day, gung ho on taking this professor down. Right now a part of that Eileen had returned, but she was still quite terrified and who wouldn’t be facing down the monster that had raped and most likely beaten her as well. She hadn’t mentioned the beating, but all the other victims had mentioned it before they suddenly refused to testify against him. He had to ask her.

“Eileen, before we head to the police station can you tell me exactly when was the last time he raped you and did he also beat you?” He noticed she was wearing a turtle neck sweater and long sleeves and pants despite it being the end of April and quite warm ouside which made him wonder if she had been beaten as well.

Tears formed in her eyes again, “Oh Kyle, I hope you don’t hate me, but when I told you I had a headache last night and begged off sex it was because the professor had beaten me and then raped me because he saw the proposal. That was my punishment for saying yes to you.”

“Oh God, honey, I would never hate you and well this whole situation is not your fault and there is no one to blame except him. Please don’t worry about that, I love you and always will.”

The detective felt some hope. “Ok there is a possibility that there is still some semen inside if he didn’t use a condom. Please tell me he didn’t.”

“No detective he didn’t use a condom he was hoping to make me pregnant. So far I have been lucky. And he beat me as well so my body is covered with bruises which is one reason I told Kyle no to sex. Kyle think back to every time I told you no. It was because I had just been with that monster.”

“Ok we have to head to the hospital and get a rape kit and pictures documented. Hopefully the sperm are still viable and if you two didn’t have sex than we should only find his sperm in there. I am sorry to put you through this, but we must. It is important to the case.

Sarah speaks up, “If you would feel better with a woman with you I would be glad to come with you for support.”

Eileen turns to her and says, “Thanks I would like that. I am sorry Kyle, but I don’t want you to see me like this. I don’t want you to remember what you would see every time we had sex. It is bad enough I can’t forget it every time, but I don’t want to disappoint you. Please let me have Sarah come along with me.”

“Sure, honey, if that would make you happier. I admit I want to kill the guy right now.”

Detective Fisher said, “Kyle please don’t do anything stupid, especially something that could jeopardize our case. Please promise me.”

“Ok, ok, I won’t do anything. Can we get this over? I want to get back to being engaged to the sexiest and most loveable woman in the world without days of ‘headaches.’ Unless they are real headaches of course.”

“Ok let’s go Eileen and Sarah. Kyle stay here with Scott please. After the exam and she files a statement I will bring her back with me.”

PLEASE FORGIVE THE BLANK AREA, BUT WORDPRESS IS ACTING UP AGAIN.

By Tessa Dean July 2021

“Hold on there,” Eileen returned to the house yelling at the top of her lungs. Kyle folded her into his arms and reminded her that the twins were sleeping. “Oh sorry,” she said quietly. “Ok, listen, I know you had to sell me on the whole detective thing, but I can’t let that jerk hurt anymore women. Kyle, I wish I could have told you this sooner, but that man raped me repeatedly and threatened to kill me if I so much as said one word about it.”

“What did you just say that creep did to you?” Kyle was the one shouting now. He grabbed a hold of her and hugged her close, wiping the tears from her eyes.

“When he saw you propose and I accepted it, he was furious. I could see him back there watching us. I am sure the grade was to make me come to him and he would possibly punish me in some way or maybe he would actually kill me since he killed his wife for heaven only knows what.”

“Detective Fisher,” Eileen turned to the detective, “I didn’t want to do this. I still don’t want to do this, but I can’t keep letting this go on with me or with anyone else he might be treating in the same way. That man is evil. I will testify, but it is going to take more than me. The background reports are helpful, but they won’t make those women testify. There are probably some here as well, besides me, but how do we get them to testify? If I start talking to women, it will get back to him and I will be dead. If you start talking to those women on the report he might very well hear about it from some of them who are still afraid of him.

By Tessa Dean July 2021

Eileen was feeling cold out there in the front yard, but she couldn’t stay in the house a second later. She had to think. She knew what the detective wanted, but she didn’t want to think about that again, plus she had never told Kyle what the professor had done to her. Would Kyle decide she was not worthy to be his wife? Would she be disgusting to him now? Did she dare tell him and everyone else what that filthy man did to her?

She came across as bold at first, but despite what he did to her she preferred to think of the situation as just a stalking game. But it wasn’t a game. The filthy old man had touched her and now she knew that he had done this to other women. She had to help put him behind bars. She had to help the detective with his case against the professor and try to persuade those other women to help her and if they banded together they could put him behind bars for good. She had no doubt he killed his wife. He threatened her more than once that he would kill her if she so much as opened her mouth as to what he did to her. However, she had no idea he had really killed someone. She was terrified now. Could she do this?

The Ring Part 11 (Part 1Part 2Part 3Part 4Part 5Part 6Part 7Part 8Part 9, Part 10)

By Tessa Dean July 2021

Jack read and studied the background reports they had found on the professor, Nathaniel Greenstone. He is aghast at what he is reading and he agrees that this man deserves more than the slap it seems he has gotten since no one will come forward and testify against him. The man is slime and not the silly toys he had just gotten the twins.

He was no longer smiling. He had no jurisdiction unless Eileen filed a report, but he can’t just shrug off what he just found. He will have to question Eileen seriously and then explain that she needed to report this for anyone to take it seriously. They would, of course run their own checks on these incidents and each report would have to be reopened and the women involved would have to go back through the awful things they went through due to this man. He hated to do it, but the professor must be stopped. Glancing over at Eileen he could see her cowering in the corner. She no longer showed the desire she had shown earlier according to Scott and Sarah to put this man where he belonged. They were losing her. Sarah had gone to her side and was holding her trying to keep her with people who cared about her before she lost it all and had to be taken in to the hospital for observation and treatment. If that happened, nothing could be done to the professor. They needed a reason to start an investigation. She had to report this.

Scott went to his spouse and slipped his arms around her and Eileen, thankful their situation hadn’t ended quite this way. Although Ariana Carter was still out there and could start stalking him again. They had to help Eileen and Kyle right now.

Jack went back to the report and noticed that the man was definitely not homely. He was even preening for the camera. He could see why the women flocked to him. Jack bet even the shy women weren’t averse to him coming on to them.

A sudden wail broke the silence. The twins were awake. Scott told Sarah to stay where she was and he would handle it. Eileen needed her more than Ashleigh Rose and Jonathan did right now. He headed off to handle the twins.

Jack was pretty sure that Eileen would not welcome his suggestions right now, but he had to try. He walked over to the corner where she was sitting with Kyle and Sarah. He knew Kyle was her fiancé according to Scott so this had to be even harder on her. Maybe she was the link these women needed to help them come forward and testify against the professor. He didn’t know what to do about the death of the professor’s wife though. He didn’t think any of these coeds he abused and beat would know anything about his wife.

“Eileen,” Jack said softly. “You know I am a police detective here in Angel’s Cove. I would like to put this man behind bars where he belongs, but I need your help. I can’t do anything unless you file a report. Has he done anything physically to you at all? He has to have made physical contact.”

Eileen burst into tears. She was shaking in Sarah’s arms. Kyle moved over to try and take her into his embrace. So far she had said nothing. She suddenly stood up and pushed everyone away and ran from the room, almost knocking Scott over in her flight. They all moved to go after her, but Sarah said “No, leave her be. She needs time to process this. Her handbag and keys are still here so she isn’t going too far most likely.”

The Ring Part 10 (Part 1Part 2Part 3Part 4Part 5Part 6Part 7Part 8, Part 9)

By Tessa Dean July 2021

Kyle shrugged, but if Eileen wanted a policeman involved, it was fine with him. Scott found his phone number in his phone and dialed before one of them changed their minds. He gave him a brief outline of what was going down and asked him to join them and maybe give the kids some hope and ideas on how to handle this situation.

Detective Jack Fisher arrived and immediately hugged Sarah and asked how the twins were doing. “Fine. It is hard to believe they are two years old now. We just had their pictures done today.”

Detective Fisher handed Sarah two bottles of slime and said to tell them Happy Birthday for me.”

“Oh Jack, did you have to get them something so nasty to play with. It will be everywhere.”

“You can handle it Sarah!” Jack laughed. “What’s going on here?”

Sarah started to tell the story since Eileen seemed to be withdrawing inward. “Eileen feels she is being stalked by this professor at her school, Angel’s Cove University. She told us the examples and she wanted to see if she could find some info on him and use it to get him to leave her alone, but it looks like from the background reports we found that he is a very dangerous man and now she is having second thoughts, despite he is trying to fail her for her final exam in his class and she is a straight-A student. She thinks he is using that grade to get her to come to him and beg him for a better grade and then he will say sure as long as you go on a date with me, but she knows he is stalking her sexually and then the two background reports are really awful. How could that school hire that man a put him in with women who he is accused repeatedly as stalking or beating them and his wife was beaten and murdered and he was on trial, but they couldn’t prove it and none of the women have come forward, now Eileen who was up to the fight at first is now terrified of him.”
