Friday on Monday.  Falling a bit more behind again, this time because I'm babysitting.  I may or may not finish Saturday's comic in time for Tuesday.  Also, I'll be spending Tuesday on a plane, so I could fall even further behind.  Fun!

Panel 1: Marie and Evil Marie are sitting on Marie's futon.

Evil Marie: Beth hid in the closet to escape her parents' fighting. Eventually, she fell asleep, but the fighting went on.

Panel 2:

Evil Marie:
It got to the point where they stopped abusing each other and started abusing Beth. I mean, this was going way beyond anything the kid deserved. It...hurt even me.

Panel 3:

Evil Marie:
I was watching. People don't see me unless I want them to. And...I don't know what it was about this one kid. There'd been so many kids, many of them a lot worse off. Maybe it was just the last straw.

Panel 4:

I don't want to know the next bit, do I?

Evil Marie: Depends. Do you enjoy desperate crying?

Alt-Text: SADNESS IS COMING (like winter, only more so).
