A common idea in this world is that when one contains a large amount of anger it eventually gets released in a big burst, causing nothing but irreparable damage.
In this case, the damage is a human life, and the anger that was built up came from a good cause. A 92-year-old mother has proven that anger can arise from anything, positive or negative.
Life After College
Anna has finally finished college, overcoming all of the obstacles it set up for her. The years of growth and an equal amount of stress have finally come to an end. At this point, she could devote all of her attention to her husband and child, who had yet to be born. Her life was finally set in place… or so she thought.
Mother And Son
After giving birth to her child, Thomas, Anna’s primary goal was to thrive in a happy family, like most parents. That goal was cut short when her husband tragically died. After his death, Anna and Thomas grew much more dependent on each other, reforging their already strong bonds with one another. Unfortunately, those bonds would be broken forever on a disastrous day.
Anna, 92, has been taken care of by Thomas, who was 72 at the time, living in his girlfriend’s condo. Her son, who was already frail and tired from old age, found that as time went on, Anna had grown increasingly more difficult to take care of. The time when he couldn’t take care of her any longer was approaching quickly…
Life Is More Difficult
His task of taking care of his mother became more and more impossible for him to do at his age. Strength slipped from his arms, and energy slowly crept away from him, causing his everyday tasks became much harder…
Energy Slipping Away
He was getting too exhausted to give his mother a bath. Then, he was getting too exhausted to make food for her. Then, he was getting too exhausted to support her and himself financially. And then, he was getting too exhausted to move her around in her wheelchair. He was no longer able to take complete care of his own mother…
Old age quickly displayed its capabilities when it had major effects on Anna. She became easily agitated, and at times attempted to be physical by pushing Thomas away whenever he tried to give her her meds. He quickly found that his mother would need to be taken care of by a new pair of hands.
Thomas decided that the best course of action would be to move her into an assisted living facility, where she would be in a better and safer environment. This way, he could also be able to devote more time to his girlfriend. He just needed Anna to consent to the change in housing, which he would find easier said than done.
When Thomas informed Anna of his plans, she was infuriated. She took her son’s selfless service as an insult, thinking he wanted to get rid of her because she was a nuisance to him. This made a permanent crack in Anna and Thomas’s relationship, forever breaking what was once a mother’s love for her son.
Thomas kept insisting she move into an assisted living facility, and as a result, she distanced herself farther from him every time he mentioned it. Her resentment toward him had built up higher and higher, to the point where she considered him a stranger. Her anger eventually led her to reach into her shelf for a destructive weapon that causes nothing but death.
One day in Thomas’s girlfriend’s condo, Thomas had a conversation with Anna, along with his girlfriend. Again, Thomas argued with her, explaining to her the reasons for him wanting her to live in a better place. She wasn’t having any of it and decided to take matters into her own hands. She pulled the firearm out from her robe, and aimed it at her own son…
An Ungrateful Mother
Thomas was speechless. After the decades of support and happiness he gave her, his own mother pointed a gun at him. He asked God why he was being punished by the one he helped for most of his life, and the only answer he got was a bullet straight through his neck.
Impaled By Bullets
Anna gave him no mercy, as she shot her son again. And again. And again. And again, and again. Through the immense pain from the several holes in his body, Thomas tried to talk to her; to ask why she committed this atrocity to the one who supported her. But all he could let out was a long, dragged out groan as he collapsed on the floor, becoming an island in his own pool of blood…
His girlfriend, who was in the room with them, screamed after her boyfriend was relentlessly killed by Anna. The dread slowly came over her as she pieced out what would happen next. She watched as the killer slowly switched aim from Thomas’s corpse to her.
A Fierce Fight
She couldn’t let the elderly woman get away with this. She wouldn’t. She sprung into action, sprinting towards the killer in the wheelchair. Before the widow could pull the trigger and end the girl’s life, Thomas’s girlfriend wrestled the firearm out of her hands and threw it into a corner of the room. But Anna’s rage didn’t end there; she proceeded to pull a second gun out…
Departure From Bloodshed
Scared for her life, Thomas’s girlfriend reacted quickly and kicked the second firearm out of the woman’s hands. She didn’t want to stay in the same room as that insane maniac any longer, so she sprinted out, leaving the killer in the room with her dead son.
The End Of Her Normal Life
After the petrified witness ran out of the room, Anna gave herself a moment to process what had happened. She just killed her everything, the one man who kept her going. The killer knew that there was no going back, as the only life that awaited her was in prison. She wanted to commit suicide…
Sirens In The Distance
Unfortunately for her, both of the guns were out of her reach, and she couldn’t move to get them. She was a sitting duck, and had no choice but to wait for the police to come…
Disturbing Crime Scene
When the police barged in, they immediately saw the crime scene. They were repulsed by the pool of blood, and even more repulsed by the sinister look that Anna had when they entered the room. When they arrested her, she said “You took my life, so I’m taking yours.”
Weapons Of The Past
The police saw the guns, and identified one of them as a pistol that Anna’s late husband gave to her for self-defense. Unfortunately, that gift of protection only caused the death of his own son. Anna purchased the other gun in the late 1970’s, carving her son’s death early on.
Anna Mae Blessing is now facing charges for the murder of Thomas Blessing with a deadly weapon. She doesn’t seem to have any doubts or regrets over the case, as she said she should be “put to sleep” for what she had done. At this point, the court needs to decide how Thomas will receive the justice he deserves.
