“In his dark room one night, Richie trembled in fear, holding back his tears, after all, he was still just a boy. But the ever-bitter Lamont, always took great pleasure in extracting hard fought lessons from his son. His broad back pulled back and the belt swung so loud Richie could hear it. One whip, two whips, three whips. Poor little Richie tried with all his might to hold his screams back, but after the fifth strike of his father’s belt, he burst into tears, making his father angrier.
‘You’ll never amount to nothin’, boy.’ His dad said, and with one final blow with his belt, ‘and you betta not forget how to behave around me. You got that?’ The last whip came, and Richie closed his eyes, wishing he were somewhere and someone else….”
Richie did amount to something, and achieved all he ever wanted in life, a big house, beautiful wife…. But would the demons of his childhood came back to haunt him, and ruin everything he worked for? Attrition is the story of one man’s struggle to regain his family, his life, and his sanity.
