I said good-bye and walked down the street. I could feel the weight of the gun in my pocket. It gave me satisfaction. The walk back to the house I called “home” was almost spiritual. I took notice of the tree paths and the streets leading up to Westmore Hill. I will never see them again, I thought. At the steps to the high school I sat down, feeling the cold stone. I thought back to the house, and the basement. I was happy inside. For the first time in years I really felt happy. I found my favorite place among the trees where I would often go and talk with God.
MORNING CAME, AND I leapt out of bed and got dressed before anyone was up. For the first time in years, I was happy. The rest of the household were going to be away for two weeks. I was finally going to be alone. A few nights before, I had been in the basement, reflecting on my life—on the child I had been and the events that had shaped who I had become. The basement had always been a place I wished I could forget. Its concrete walls held all the emotions, fears, and tears of the little boys—me and my brother David—captured and forced down there and abused.

Even though he was kneeling down and facing the opposite direction, I could tell that he was very tall. When Darlene introduced me to John, her husband, he stood up, put his hand out, and welcomed me to the neighborhood. As he stood up, as if in slow motion, I was intimidated to see the sheer size of the man. He seemed larger than life—he was well over six feet tall.
