“BUSTED!” is what the Surgeon text-messaged me after he called the House in THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT to inquire whether a woman matching my description worked there.
Then he came there to look for me.
Left multiple voice messages in the course of two and a half hours. Many texts.
He’s agitated. Feels that I’m antagonizing him–because I won’t respond.
For the future: Does this qualify as a predictable surprise? Could I have prevented his appearance at my workplace tonight? And, importantly, am I underestimating/dismissing this man’s capacity for violence?
