The Devil Slept in My Bed

“Thanks for the platform Angela. Sorry you had the unfortunate experience of getting molested by my old room mate Curtiss Parker. Hope you get over it some day but I know that’s easier said than done. Allowing me to post this article should at least give you some satisfaction. Too bad it won’t bring you redemption. Maybe we’ll get lucky and someone will do something about these two con men. As always, Your Friend and former neighbor, John Harter”

Hey John. Last summer he came downstairs and slept in my bed. I arrived home to find my roommate on the couch, and Curtis in my bed. I believe that was about the same day I decided to kick my roommate out (reasoning, of what use is it to have “a man in the house” when he allows the drunk neighbor to waltz through the living room and into my bedroom to sleep in my bed, when his is upstairs?!).

Later when I was dealing with the cops and they wanted to know why I didn’t feel safe at home, I responded “the devil slept in my bed”. Of course cops are far less imaginative than I am, and they took that to mean I was crazy. Thus I was taken away and locked up—and Curtis still runs free. Irony of life.

I’m not sure what I would suggest you’d do. Curtis told the landlord malicious lies about me, apparently also spreading rumors in the complex about me as well. I heard from neighbors about his saying I was lesbian and other sexually oriented lies. Eventually Karen, the landlord, decided to get rid of me. Why she’s kept Curtis so long, and why she chose him over me, I have no idea. That however doesn’t fair well for you.

You should look into your legal rights—are you on the lease? Is he? Is it a joint lease?
