An Angry God

To offer up a weak poor innocent lamb
To appease an angry god.
—Macbeth IV.iii

I was caught in morning traffic coming into Seattle. I’d sat in the cafe running searches through the night until finally ran down the batteries of both the tablet and the laptop. I drove back to Seattle with less pressure on the gas pedal. I still didn’t have a great answer. In fact, I didn’t have an acceptable answer. Andi simply was not who she said she was. I’d even run a search designed to find a news story about a death with a smile, a martini, and a pregnant wife. I was amazed at how many of those there were.

And really—what could I say about it anyway? I couldn’t just open a conversation and say, “By the way, now that I’ve told you I love you, who are you?” I was sure there was a simple explanation, but outside of being in a witness protection program, I had no idea what it could be….

Oh Dear! Did I really just throw Dag under the bus? Literally? Chapter 20 of For Toil and Trouble.
