This short story shows Coop before he became The Hitchhiker. He was a normal boy, with a dark secret. He carried the weight of a curse with him constantly. Whenever someone touched him, their thoughts and emotions flooded his mind. The fear of being thought of as crazy by ones own parents can be traumatizing! However, God had something great in store for this young man. Not a curse, but a gift.
