Subject: May I call you?
I’ve got myself in an unpleasant situation with the young David – I know, you warned me about him, but I let him contact me anyway. It was a really bad idea; now, I need your advice and your help. I’m attaching pictures of a greeting card he sent me, just to give you an idea of the kind of harassment I’m dealing with now.
Moi — Allô?
Owen — Hi sweetie, it’s Owen.
Moi — Owen! How do you do?
Owen — Better than you, if I understood your message correctly.
Moi — Yeah. Things got out of hand with David… and now, it’s getting really heavy…
Owen — Tell me what happened.
Moi — Well, we started my exchanging text messages. He invited me insistently for a coffee, and I always refused. But he always came back.
Owen — Stubborn little prick, isn’t he?
Moi — More than you could ever imagine. When I got tired of his harassment, he tried to break into my house.
Owen — Goddammit. That’s sick.
Moi — It was very scary, to say the least. And then, there was that greeting card with the psycho handwriting…
Owen —I will immediately ban him from the club! He’s a harasser and we have nothing to do with that kind of asshole.
Moi — Sure, that’s a good thing and I thank you for doing this… but I had also another idea.
Owen — Which is?
Moi — David told me he lived with his parents.
Owen — So?
Moi —I only have his cell phone number, not his address at home… and I want to talk to his mom.
Owen — Ha ha ha! That could scare him straight indeed! Let me see… I actually have a land line number he gave me some time ago.. It must be at his parents’ house. I never called there, though.
Moi — What is it?
Owen — Eight one nine… five five five, six two nine one.
Moi — Owen, you’re an angel.
Owen — It’s the least I can do. Hope mommy will give her son the spanking he deserves.
Moi — I’m sure she will.
Owen — I want you to call me if that doesn’t work. We’ll figure out something to make sure he leaves you alone.
Moi — I will! Thanks again for your help!
Owen — My pleasure, sweetie. Take care!
