Jason brought the abandoned girls home from work. They had dirty faces and clothing that looked like it had seen better days. He showed them forgotten kindnesses.
On winter nights he gathered them near the fire’s searing warmth. He melted their reserves. They quickly became his obsession. He recorded them, photographing them in various poses and states of undress.
Even though they had once been loved and cherished, his housemates found them creepy and objected to their occupation of the loungeroom. They were banished to the garage outside. Lined up against the back wall, they welcomed him home each evening.
