Hello and welcome back.
Today is another in a series of character interviews with characters who appear in No Rest For The Vengeful. This one is with Kory Brown.
IW: How are you doing today?
Kory: Same as always. Okay I suppose.
IW: You’ve had a pretty rough start in life, haven’t you?
Kory: You remind me of that Captain Obvious commercial. You don’t have to tell me. It’s like I must have done something in a former life to be punished in this one.
IW: You believe in past life regression?
Kory: Don’t know what to believe, but I can’t think of any other reason. I must have done something to deserve being born into the family I did. My father went to jail, my mother, I don’t know where she is. So I got stuck in the foster care system. They only used me for the beer money and to play their video lottery terminals. That’s what they used the money they got from the Children’s Protection Society. It was supposed to be used to look after my needs.
IW: And so what else happened?
Kory: Sometimes I couldn’t avoid the beer rages that the foster father went into. My ribs got cracked every so often. Then met up with some guy, who passed me around to his friends to enjoy, if you know what I mean. Then met another man who had promised to look after me. Should have known it would be too good to be true.
IW: In what way?
Kory: He had said he was a rich business man and he would get me out of the life I was leading. Help me get a fresh start. It wasn’t the fresh start I was expecting. I got put into a far worse nightmare than what I was already in. That’s all I really want to talk about.
