Joe and Sheila Rath are celebrating their anniversary in the enchanting cottage by the lake with their daughter, Rene.
“Daddy, won’t you tuck me in?” little Rene pleads fondly, after a delightfully unique family dinner under the moonlight.
“Of course, darling ” Joe responds to his daughter’s call with his hallmark paternal smile .
“Can you tell me a bedtime story too ? please?”
“Another day, all right ?I need to work now.”
Joe shuts the door of the sleeping room carefully and takes leave of his compliant wife .
He drives past the lake and the little houses to the isolated blue house .
There she is , most enticing in her crimson dress .
“I have been waiting, keenly. “.
“Me too, my lovely lady !”
A giddy Joe walks over to the kitchen counter to inspect and select the most appropriate knife for the very fine third victim.
“I am powerful. I am invincible . I am the Ophidian”, Joe thinks out loud, trampling every inch of the blue house with waves of his sinful laughter.
