32.19% Spending My Retirement In A Game / Chapter 187: Escalation

Chapter 187: Escalation

After the initial guests arrived, more and more people started showing up, and Benjamin spent some time socializing with them while at the same time taking care of the food. For the ribs, he only needed to check on them every half hour and cover them in some of the barbecue sauce, and since everything else was finished, he just needed to grill everything else, distributing everything left and right regularly.

And while he wasn't doing that, he talked to some of his old friends and people from all around town, simply having fun. Apparently, he wasn't the only one having fun either, since he could spot Sophia with Kim all day, mostly them talking to each other alone. At one of those occasions, Melody stepped up to Benjamin as well.

    "Sorry its so long i was in the zone." 😶🙄🤗 It's possible if you can imagine the character's as real people then start asking questions. Do this while thinking about their mental states. I figure Melody met her husband at her lowest point in life after her mothers death or maybe before that but they somehow connected after that. She might have always felt her family was weird or had other potential friends say so often , and/or she might have hated herself for not being "normal" as she was of mixed race. Any one of these reasons and more could lead her to seek solace in the presences of someone who she deemed completely normal. Now Michael more than likely he was raised in, yes, a strongly religious family. But there is probably something a little deeper that made him so passive aggressive and verbally abusive. Maybe his father verbally abused his mother often. Always mocking her for her weight, lack of education, or for simply being a woman. And in his mother's desperate need for affection she showvgwtmered love on her son. Her son was an perfect genius angel who could do no wrong. His father allowed this with very few scathing remarks, and slight praise for his wife because he was somewhat proud of his son. Wich in turn made her intensify her actions. This turned Michael into a narcissist. Sure maybe the author has a beef with a few religious people he'd like to vent out , well..... it seems he found the perfect medium. We can guess for forever as to the why and how of the character's actions. Or why the Authors writes every word the way he does, but me ......I'd rather enjoy the story.

    It didn't just come to light, everyone in the family knew about what kind of person Michael was, he just never pulled stuff like that before. But that's why Sophia didn't want to come out to them. And a lot of good people marry *ssholes, because of different stuff. Maybe Michael wasn't always as extreme as that, or he was just hiding it for a while

    Honestly, yeah, it was meant to be on the extreme side of things, but it's not like people like Michael don't exist. The vast majority of religious people I know are incredibly kind and pleasant people, but those that are like Michael are still a thing
