THE NEXT STEP
“Good luck, Camden. You’ll need it!” The last prison guard I ever wanted to see gave me an evil grin and told me the last thing I wanted to hear.
I didn’t look back when the steel door closed behind me. No one would be waving good-bye and I didn’t need to remember the gray walls that held me for eighteen long years. I should have learned patience in all that time but I couldn’t wait to get away. I wanted to get on a bus before the parole board changed its mind about letting me go. Although I still faced seven years of supervision, the balance of my twenty-five year sentence, good behavior and a little luck had earned my release.
