Enter the devil, in the guise of Martin Taylor, an outwardly respectable, well-mannered, clean and considerate young man who pretends to have known, and held an unrequited love for, Pattie before the accident. His true intention is revealed later on, however, when installed in Pattie's old bedroom for the night, as he fondles her underwear and fantasizes about having sex with her."; 36 pages.
