The Man with the Black Belt
by Sandy Appleyard
Young Sam has long ebony hair, caramel skin, a wicked kick, and he is hated by many. An old man holds a bitterness for him, just waiting for the boy to screw up, and when a young girl exploits him in a deplorable manner, Mr. Seamington's wish comes true. Years later, as Sam drives to the dojo one afternoon, he grips the steering wheel as he witnesses a horrific scene.
