A Dark Place
by Bud Simpson
Lurking deep within all of us are hidden demons; negative personalities. Personalities that would willingly do things our outer persona would never dream of doing. It is the same with Pearlman White. Pearlman is the homely, bullied son of Lila White, a prostitute, who disappears and leaves her sixteen year-old son alone to fight his fearful way into an uncertain future. What triggers these demons lurking deep within this gentle boy to come raging to the surface? What causes this introverted soul to become a monster to whom killing is merely a justified act? In the end, did all his horrible deeds actually happen, or did they come about only within his troubled mind?
