Of Loves Lost & Friends Past
Chapter 5: This Is It
Ms. Foster, please state for the court, in your own words, what you witnessed on the night of November 14, the social services lawyer asked.
Frankie was dressed in a black day suit. Her right arm was finally out of its cast, but her legs still needed time. She reached up, almost gleefully, with her right arm and pulled the microphone down.
I was at home, out on the porch when Mac showed up, she answered.
Alright and what was his condition?
Frankie took a deep breath remembering what the lawyer had told her to say, Mac was severely beaten. His face was a pulp and he was covered in blood, I assume his own.
Several members of the jury shook their heads in disgust. This was a very important case and it was also a heinous one. The trial had just started, but already people were feeling uncomfortable. Mac was the first person to take the stand and many were teary eyed as he finished telling the tale of his many encounters with Terrence.
