The Excerpt




For the first time in years, I will leave behind the walls of my strange shelter: the asylum. Tomorrow I board a train to visit Mabel, my friend. Ill wear a mourning veil in public, so people wont gawk or reel back in revulsion at the naked sight of my face. I grieve the worst when the children cry; then I become a nightmare to some poor little soul. I hate that: adding to anothers fear. We all bear enough.


My lungs command a deep breath, and I reach to turn down the lamp. The future comes tomorrow whether I am ready or not.


Ready or not!” The words stab me in the throat, and I feel as if Im being basted with a sharp needle. Those were Lonnys last words. My eyes roll shut, and I see the flash of white, the brown, curly head, the grin before he turned, the crash of the poles, like the blast of a mighty horn. I wanted to scream, but my voice caught in my throat, choking me. My mouth hung open, but all that came out was silence.


I breathe, in and out slowly, like the doctor taught me. The visions recede.


My eyes open. The room has been thrown under a dark caul, and I realize I must have turned down the wick of the kerosene lamp. Now my face looks ghostly in the slightly spotted, silver- backed glass. I move to the bed, jump in, and tuck the covers up to my chin, praying I wont dream of Lonny.


Please, God. Not tonight.
