2 Works in Henry Bowers & Victor Criss
Never once in his life had Henry thought it’d be better not to speak, because there wasn’t ever anything Henry wanted to say that shouldn’t be said. Everything came out with a purpose, and Henry didn’t have any targets. He sprayed bullets indiscriminately, just with the intent to kill.
But for once, he thought, he’d better be careful.
Henry’s father has always been a mean bastard. There’s no denying that. Henry’s earliest memory involves being walloped across his face while his father screamed incoherently above him. Anyone who would strike a three-year-old couldn’t be anything but a bastard, but it still took Henry’s mom another five years and a trip to the hospital to pick Henry up and leave.
(Or what would have happened if Henry's mom had taken him with her when she left Butch Bowers)
