Chapter 1

“Another night in hell” Jesse thought to himself. This night started the same as all the others, with one exception, tonight he was getting out of hell. Looking out the small window, Jesse could see a bright high-intensity security light mounted high on a pole two hundred feet away. The light casts a weak glow through the narrow barred window. Although the light reaching into his prison cell was dim, Jesse had enough to see shadowed outlines of the limited furnishings in the room. A short bunk, a rickety writing table, a toilet, and sink completed his world. Even with a total absence of light, touch alone would have served him. Feeling the bars in his hands, Jesse lost track on how many times he has held this cold steel in the past two years. Many sleepless nights he roamed the small cramped cell, always ending back at the same barred window. It was a nightmare to endure, Jesse’s own personal hell. The rest of the world was just on the other side of that small three-by-four foot window. He could look, but he could not touch, or be a part of the world where men roamed free. It was no one else’s fault he was here. Jesse chose the path he now walked on, and this is where it got him.
