Denny Mallory was a kid I went to school with, and even then you could tell that there was something seriously wrong.
Both him and his sister always looked kind of feral. They both had haircuts that looked like they’d been done by their mother with a blunt butter knife.
Now, I’m not knocking them for being poor, most of the kids that went to my school had families that were poor, myself included.
But this was something beyond poor, even beyond neglect. Denny missed most of his last year at school because he had ringworm, and this was 1989, not the 1930s.
Anyway after his last day at school, Denny decided to make some money for himself. So he burgled a house in which the parents and 3 children were all asleep. As he was leaving, with his bag marked “swag”, good ol’ Denny noticed that he had left big, dirty footprints all over the floor.
He knew that this kind of forensic evidence would be more than helpful to the police.
So what did Denny do?
Get rid of his shoes, perhaps ?
Maybe burn them.
Not Denny, he decided to set fire to the house with all 5 people in there asleep.
I don’t know what happened, but luckily the family woke up, nobody died, and dumb ol’ Denny got 30 years for 5 charges of attempted murder.
Now, fast forward 15 years to when Denny gets out of prison.
The guy has been locked up since the day he left school, aged 16. Like anyone else, he’s bound to have urges, I don’t know what his sex life was like in jail, but he definitely hasn’t slept with a woman for 15 years.
So, what does Denny do on his first day of release ?
On the very first night that he’s out of jail, he rapes the first woman that speaks to him.
So now Denny is locked up again, and this time let’s hope that they don’t let him out again.
If there’s a factory up in heaven, where God keeps churning out souls, then there’s bound to be some rejects now and then.
I think that’s what our Denny is, a fuck up from start to finish.
