I knelt beside the short, brick wall surrounding St. Mary’s Hospital for the criminally insane. The full moon hung in the sky like the giant spit wad on the ceiling in the boys’ bathroom at school. It wasn’t helping my situation. There was way too much light. Mom always said to stay in on full moons, but there was no way I was leaving her in this place.
“What the hell!” I squealed like a girl and jumped ten feet in the air.
