Thank you for this, will look forward to more in next drabble. Ian really is horrible, and a dangerous type.

Thank you, I wondered what Ian had been planning to disrupt Cecily and John's visit.  His reactions were too good to be true.

What a horrible, manipulating little.......!  I can understand why Phil hates her children, but am worried about what she's going to do now. 

Many thanks for this story Myth Tree. Looking forward to the next installment when you have time.

The more we hear about Ian the more I find him objectionable.

Oh Phil, Phil! This is how it will be! He will lie, manipulate and mess with your mind until he breaks you totally. Get away now!

Poor Phil. she has had a rough time. I'm surprised Ian has even agreed to Cecily and John visiting, he'll probably soon produce reasons why they shouldn't come, it's going to be obvious if they that she isn't involved in her children's lives at all, even if he could hide his nasty ways during the visit.

 In one way I am loving this, and in one way not. It brings back some bad memories.

Having said that, this kind of abuse is sadly common and anything that increases awareness is important.

Oh no! Just when her eyes have been opened and she needs the support of her family to escape all of this happens! Not fair!

Lots of bad news when she's so far away must be so difficult to deal with, especially if she has no-one she can talk to. Poor Phil! Do hope she has some happiness soon!

Poor Phil, family problems outside anyone's control intervening in her parents visit and opening the door to Ian's manipulation.  Sorry to hear about Dick and Madge.

Ugh, horrible to have the game playing, he is a seriously screwed up person to need to control and hurt another human like this. Wonder about the person in the bookshop??

Ooh, a letter...

Abusers always bring out the good times. The good times make you doubt and think that they're not all bad (and further lead into the ideas that you can change them; that the abuse is your fault for riling them up; that maybe you are going overboard in your negative depictions of them). Blegh.

This is so much the pattern that the controller carries out. Poor Pip, no wonder she found it difficult to know what was really happening to her.

Pleased Ian gave her a pleasant time, even if it was for the wrong reasons and that Phil's eyes are now open to his devious nature.

Swearing in pastry should certainly become a thing!

Horrendous but still happens much more than it should. Hope she manages to avoid more pain but suspect that will be hard.

Phil needs to leave him NOW! Interesting side to Mrs Smythe who has decided to put up with what is probably the same situation.

I'm sorry though that Phil hasn't been able to bond with her children.  Not having them with her will make escape easier but even so . . .

Ian is a very manipulating man and his mother is colluding with him. I am pleased Phil is reappearing.  

The way her mother-in-law took control of the boys is terrible, I am sure if Phil had dealings with them she would have bonged.

Good she is seeing it, but not for the situation. I suspect she'll have some rocky roads to travel before she can hopefully escape. Thank you for more, hope internet behaves soon!

Phil, I am pleased you have woken up to Ian' manipulation, but it is not good to blame the boys.  However putting them in a nanny's care and in another household is another sign of Ian' manipulation.  

Loved Phil's response to the computer 

Thanks for the update
