This time it took close to a month to get Maria on the phone. She was making it clear she didn’t have to talk to me and if I kept pushing this she would simply stop picking up the phone.
I tried to appeal to her Christian values this time and voice my concern that way.

Switching to their default position, Maria figured ignoring me was the way to go. The old “Ignore it and it will go away” tactic was a proven winner for my father.
When Cindy from Vegas started blowing up my burner phone after Soon- didn’t pay her off, I called my father.
“Ignore the calls,” Todd said with the confidence of someone who had done it a hundred times, “it’s been my experience if you just ignore it long enough, it will go away.”
Unlike Cindy, they had called me “family” at one point. We are talking decades of family holidays, vacations, graduation, etc.
I kept trying to prove to myself my suspicions were wrong, that they really loved me and I didn’t want to accept the fact that they considered me nothing more than a prostitute, someone to be used, exploited and then discarded.
