I found the beginning of the story entertaining as Brenda celebrated her first human kill. Except it wasn’t her first. Her first human kill was her husband but that was OK because he had hit her and abused her a lot until something snapped. If she had remembered cutting off his head and maybe confessing, the government might not have declared her insane and had her committed to Dr. Franco’s house. Of course, it wasn’t a house; it was an asylum, but Brenda and Dr. Franco agreed asylum was just not a polite title.
