Psycho.

From a young age, Liam always found it hard to bond with his father, Robert Walker. While, Liam and his mother, Cherry, always had baking in common, it wasn't often that Liam found exciting things to do with his dad, especially when he was younger. Later on in life, Liam and Robert would connect over their love of art and painting, however, when Liam was a kid, finding a common ground proved to be difficult. As a child, around the age of 11, this had Liam experiencing his first known feelings of self-doubt and sadness. The thoughts of feeling distanced from his dad, depressed him greatly, knowing they didn't share the same type of friendship that he had with his mother. During a time when Liam felt at his lowest inside, Robert had an idea to help strengthen their relationship, but it came with one condition, don't tell Cherry.
 
One day, Liam and Robert were left in the house alone as Cherry was out with her girlfriends, doing some shopping and then planning to go out for a few late-night drinks. So needless to say, she wouldn't be back home until much later. This gave Robert lots of time to introduce Liam to the world of horror. Horror movies were something that Robert was presented with by his father and it only felt right to begin to pass down that torch to his son, Liam. If Liam was uncomfortable, he wouldn't push, but it was something he felt they could do together, just them. It was an early evening in Sydney and Robert called out for his son to show him his first ever scary film ꟷ Psycho (1960), directed by Alfred Hitchcock, starring Anthony Hopkins. Liam happily joined his father in the living room to see him holding a small DVD casing in his hands. "Dad, what's up? You want to watch a movie together?"

His father grinned and brought Liam over to the family couch in the living room, sitting him down. "Son." He began. "When I was your age, my dad would show me scary movies and well, it brought us closer together." Liam kept a raised eyebrow above his right eye as his father spoke towards him. "And I was wondering if that's something you might want to start doing together as well." As Liam processed what his dad was telling him, he still had the natural 11-year-old boy curiosity that any other kid would have. His eyes peered down at his dad's hands as he was still holding the DVD close to him. "Is that what you want to watch together?" Liam questioned as his eyes were pointed right at the thin plastic container. "Yes." His dad replied with a soft nod towards his son. "Can I see it?" Liam asked as he extended his palms outward in the direction of the DVD. 

His dad nodded as he handed the plastic casing to his son. "Just, whatever you do, please don't tell your mother, not now, this can be our thing." Liam chuckled a little at his dad, wanting to keep this under wraps. Before giving his dad a straight yes or no answer, he flipped the DVD over, with the front facing down as he began to read the biography of the film, his eyes scanning each individual sentence. ꟷ A secretary from Phoenix, Marion Crane, is on the run after stealing $40,000 from her job in order to disappear with her boyfriend, Sam Loomis. Overcome with exhaustion after driving for so long, she checks in for the evening at a desolated motel, The Bates Motel. Here she meets, Norman Bates, a highly functioning adult, whom is a desk clerk at the motel, who has a love for taxidermy and a strange relationship with his mother.

After re-reading the plot of the film several times, Liam agrees to watch the film with his dad. Even if it was scary at times, the plot was seemed good and Liam thought he would focus more on that than the blood and gore, if there was any. Liam lifted his head up and nodded in his father's direction. "Okay, we can watch it." Liam said with a smile as he handed the case back to his dad, getting himself comfortable on the couch. Before starting the film, his dad went into the kitchen to make him and his son some horror movie snacks. He returned a few moments later with two cola's, a bowl of popcorn and some chocolate crackle for the father and son to share during the movie. As Liam got the food situated, Robert opened the DVD case and put the movie in the player, joining back with his son shortly after, waiting to hit play.

The film was 1 hour and 49 minutes long, although it felt like much longer for Liam. As he thought before, during the whole movie, he stayed as focused as he could on the sub-plot of the film rather than the murderous spree of Norman Bates. He didn't want to let up to his dad that he was getting scared, so he hid this fact by constantly stuffing food into his mouth. However, Robert knew that trick from doing it himself when he was a kid. Despite feeling scared and uneasy, he knew this was important to his dad and sat through the entire film with him, even through the iconic scene where Norman kills Marion. Liam's breathing increased as he used all of his will power to not scream or cry at the horrific scene. Soon after that scene, the film was over and Liam was able to rest his mind with ease, knowing that it was done. Liam had never experienced fright like that before and the feeling would last with him long after the completion of the film.
 
Liam kept his promise in not telling Cherry about the activity that him and his dad had shared together. However, the truth came out about a day or so later because of the nightmares. Because of the imagery that Liam was exposed to with Psycho, it caused him to have very intense and vivid nightmares. The nightmares weren't always related to the movie itself, but they were dark imaginations that caused Liam to wake up in the middle of the night screaming. Cherry and Robert would both take turns easing him back to sleep, especially Robert. After a week of the night terror's, Liam wanted it to end. There had to be something he could do to overcome this new fear of horror movies.
 
A week or so after watching Psycho, Liam was flipping through the television channels and saw something that caught his attention. It was a documentary about the movie, Psycho, a film that was still fresh in his mind. Internally, he was scared that the documentary might show clips from the movie but at the same time, he thought this might be good for him. Maybe watching the documentary would help him overcome the fear of watching other horror films in the future, as he thought he might have to do. He also thought about his dad. Horror movies were obviously very important to him. He wanted a strong connection with his dad at any cost, even if that very thing scared him, he wanted their bond to grow and to have something to share with him throughout his childhood.

With that, Liam made the choice to watch the 40-minute documentary on the 60s film, feeling much better after watching it. Watching the mini-movie really opened up Liam's mind to the idea of physical effects, acting and the history of real life killers. Believe it or not, after processing the film as people working and creating content for viewership, the nightmare's stopped and slowly but surely, Liam ventured out to watch more and more horror movies. Some movies he watched alone and some he shared with his dad. As the years passed, he found more solitude and comedy within the horror genre. Now, being a huge lover of horror, he's thankful that his dad showed him Psycho when he did. His dad just wanted a way to bond with his son but for Liam, he taught him that you can overcome your fears, even if it's hard sometimes.

Death of a loved one.

Throughout his life in Australia, Liam was very close to his mother and loved her with all of his heart. As much as a son could love his mother. The two of them did a lot of things together, including teaching Liam how to first prepare pastries at the age of six. Liam learning how to bake at the hands of his mother was something that he cherished very much. It was an easy way for the mother and son to spend ample time together and Liam seemed to be quite skilled in the hobby that the two of them shared. Liam's mother was very proud of her son and always encouraged him to take his passions seriously and to always bake from the heart.

Despite their loving, mother and son relationship, tragedy poured over the family on December 1st, 2014, the day Liam's mother ― Cherry Walker ― died. Cherry’s death was the result of a drunk driver. She hadn’t done anything wrong in the rules of the road whatsoever. It was simply the other person abusing the speed limit, going the wrong direction and being under heavy usage of alcohol that caused her death. It was the night that resulted in torture, sadness, and regret for everyone involved. After the events of that night, a funeral was held soon after, involving extended friends and family. The night his mother died, was the hardest and saddest day of Liam’s life to date. No heartbreak, fight or complication in life has ever compared to the sheer brokenness that Liam had felt the night his mother passed away and was killed in that car accident.

December 1st, 2014 This story begins with Liam being over at a friend's house. Lucky for him, this was his best friend so this is someone who helped Liam a great deal after the events of the night unfolded. His name was Tyler, and he lived in Camper down, New South Wales, Australia, about eleven minutes away from Liam’s home. The two of them were hanging out at Tyler’s parent's apartment, playing video games, watching scary movies, and playing mindless games with one another ― average teenage boy things. It was right around dinner time when Cherry was due to pick up Liam to take him home, as the boys had school the next day. However, Liam hadn’t gotten a text from his mom stating she was close or was even on her way. Some other people might be worried, but at this time, Liam wasn’t. She had probably just stopped at the store or was taking care of dad, or something, right? As Liam and Tyler sat around the dinner table with Tyler’s family, Liam’s phone dinged off. He didn’t want to be disruptive but it could have been Cherry. Hopefully, not being too rude, Liam pulled his device out of his pocket and unlocked the screen. It was Cherry, she was on her way. The text reads as follows.

”Hey pumpkin. Crazy traffic, be there in 30 XOXO.”

That was the last text that Liam would ever receive from his mother and virtually, those were the last words she ever spoke to him. Thinking nothing of it, Liam texted back and slid the device back into his pocket. 

”Okay mom, I’ll pack up soon. Love u.”

After finishing the meal that Tyler’s family had prepared, Liam went off and began to pack his belongings in his overnight bag. After completing that, he and Tyler decided to play some video games online until Cherry showed up. The boys really didn’t have a good concept of time but thirty minutes turned into an hour and then two hours. Once Liam realized how much time had gone by, he increasingly became more worried about his mom’s whereabouts. He excused himself into the family bathroom as he rung his mom's phone but it had gone straight to voicemail. That wasn't like Cherry. If her phone was dying, she would have been sure to text her son when it was between 5-10 percent of low battery. Liam's heart began to race, with how much time had gone by, he began to think the worse and Liam experienced anxiety for the first time.

He tried to put any bad thoughts out of his mind as he exited the bathroom. There is probably just some traffic, she might be backed up, maybe dad needed some more medicine ― Liam did his best to surround himself with these thoughts in an attempt to calm down his mind and to not assume the worst-case scenario. When he rejoined Tyler and his family in the living area, the police where there and Tyler's parents were in a fit of tears, with Tyler's mom kneeling, crying her eyes out. Liam was confused and worried as he rushed to Tyler's side, trying to figure out what was going on. 

"Are you, Liam Walker?" 

One of the policemen asked as he took a step closer to the teen. Why was the officer concerned with me? How did he know my name? Why did he know my name? Liam's tone was very nervous as he crooked out his answer to the uniformed officer. 

" Y―Yes, I'm Liam."

He spoke out softly, with a nervous tone rattling under his breath. The officer let out a heavy painful sigh as he wrapped an arm around Liam's shoulders and led him to a secluded area of the apartment. He encouraged Liam to sit down as he slowly delivered the painful and heartbreaking news of Cherry's death. 

"This is isn't easy, this is never easy, but we're here because your mom Cherry, has...she was in a car accident and I'm afraid she didn't make it Liam, I am so sorry."

Drabble: Pavlova on the menu.

Why did they want to see me? What was this all about, after all? Was I in trouble? I don’t think I’ve been late recently and even so, they wouldn’t pull me into such a big office if I was simply late to a shift. And why was the big boss involved in all of this? Nobody had really given Liam much context to what was going on, in fact, the other co-workers at the bakery were pretty vague about the whole situation. Liam’s anxiety began to get the better of him as he began to tap his shoe rapidly against the tile floor. He was placed in a large, empty office, all by himself, waiting for some sort of meeting to happen it would appear ― but for what? Was it good? Was it bad? Was he getting fired? Again, Liam virtually has no idea why he is here and why he is sitting alone, only to be left alone with his racing thoughts. 
 
After several moments of sitting alone in the spacious office, a line of staff members entered the room. They looked so professional and well-groomed. Each of them was male and all were dressed in black suits, Bluetooth earpieces and the shiniest shoes Liam had ever seen. Liam couldn’t help but think, because of the level of attire they wore, that there was no way that he wasn’t in trouble. This had to be cooperation from Knott’s Berry. Liam took in a deep, slow breath as he spoke towards one of the men as they all took a seat across from him. With a gulp of his throat, Liam finally spoke out.

“H―Hello, good afternoon.”

Liam softly spoke out, doing his best to keep his composure together in front of the men. Although, naturally being a very nervous person, Liam was unable to hide his uneased feelings. Little soft beads of sweat began to run down his forehead and down the sides of his cheek, his body internally shaking. The man raised a cocked eyebrow in Liam’s direction and kept a sly smirk on his lips as he stared him down.

The man turned his smirking grin, into a full smile as he began to lay down some papers in front of Liam. He pushed his fingers through his jet black hair and appeared to be very calm and relaxed ― even happy. He organized the papers in front of him before speaking out to reply to Liam. Making sure each of the papers laid on top of one another perfectly, each of the edges touching one another.

"Thank you so much for taking time out of your day to talk with us, Mr. Walker ― We are so excited to start this creative adventure with you!" 
 
The man said in a very cheery tone, like, genuinely friendly. What on earth is he even talking about? Adventure? What adventure? Had he seriously bumped his head or is there something going on involving Liam that even he wasn't aware of. As Liam peered his vision around the room he could see that all the men had different papers stacked up, much like the guy in front of him did. From the corner of his eye, Liam caught a word on one of these papers ― pavlova. Pavlova? That was a pastry desert Liam learned to bake back in Australia and has become pretty notorious for making it in the community, but why did this stranger have it printed on a piece of paper?
 
"We understand that Knott's Berry hasn't told you much about your meeting today, so I'll get right to it. We know you've made some traditional Australian based cuisine in the bakery from time to time, and frankly, it's always a massive hit. You are an incredibly skilled baker and the locals love sampling the different dishes, so, we would like to offer the chance for you to permanently put Pavlova on the menu for Ghost Town Bakery and Farm Bakery."
