    Thanks for the comment. Yes, Frank is a bit forward in his actions. What are his intentions? Is this relationship going to be something Ed won't like? Will Frank take advantage of Ed's obliviousness and innocence? Well . . .
  2. I woke early in the morning, and then realized I hadn’t set my alarm. Then I realized that I wasn’t at home, and, therefore, I couldn’t have set the alarm clock to wake me. This was to be my first day as my new self, and my mind was so full of the things I could do if I didn’t have to work for a living, it obviously caused me to wake up without the alarm. I had the trust fund that would provide a certain degree of financial freedom. Plus, there was the additional money from Dr. Levinson’s malpractice insurance. Considering what he did to me, the money E3 was able to get was kind of small, but
  3. They brought my dinner, but for some reason I wasn’t hungry. I didn’t know the reason for not being hungry, so I picked at the meatloaf that wasn’t close to what Syl made. There were lumpy white things in the meatloaf that had a sandy texture that reminded me of when I was a little kid and ate dirt. I didn’t eat any of the white things after the first bite. The mashed potatoes were runny and the brown gravy had a sour taste. I didn’t eat the mashed potatoes and gravy after the first bite. The green peas were not very green, they were the color of Army vehicles. I think that color is olive drab
  4. I pulled the bell cord as the bus went through the intersection of North One Hundred Tenth Street and Meridian Avenue North. I was still thinking about what happened at the Seventh Heaven Hotel and my proposed position as office helper in the personnel office and gofer for Mr. Ibrahim. I sort of felt like they were just giving me a job to satisfy E3’s desire for me to be employed. The bus stopped and I went to the front to pay my fare. “Have a good day,” the driver said. “Yes, thank you,” I said. As I was walking down North One Hundred Twelfth Street to the North Park Tower apar

    Thanks for the comment. We can only hope that Frank's offer of friendship and the job as gofer are good things for Ed.
  6. Monday finally came and my alarm clock went off at 5:30. I opened my eyes and thought for a moment about why the alarm clock was making so much noise so early in the morning. Then I realized that was a crazy thought and the alarm was making so much noise for a reason. I remembered I had to be down at the Seventh Heaven Hotel at Sixth Avenue and Yesler Way at eight o’clock to fill out the paperwork to be employed as a banquet and conference helper. I turned off the alarm clock and got out of bed. I went into the bathroom and did everything that needed to be done so I could get dressed. I went b

    Thanks for the comment. A group home might have worked for Eddie. Unfortunately, this story takes place in the 1960s when the mentally ill were still commonly institutionalized. With his father's help, Eddie has a good chance of success in the endeavor.

    Chapter 13

    Thanks for the comment. I think Eddie has a good chance of "making it" with the help of his father and his father's assistant, Gloria. The important thing is he doesn't have to worry about Syl interfering in his life any longer.
  9. “Mr. Pedersen, please go to the nurse’s window,” Psych Aide David said. “Have I done something wrong?” I asked. “No, but you are wanted at the nurse’s window.” I walked over to the window and saw Nurse Martha, who said, “Mr. Pedersen, you are being discharged today. I have your discharge instructions to review with you.” “Why am I being discharged?” I asked. “You have come to the end of your treatment program here at Northern State Hospital. Dr. Doyle, your psychiatrist, has issued instructions for you to follow once you have returned home. We notified your family yest

    Thanks for your comment. Ever upward, but too bad about Syl trying to mess things up.

    Thanks for the comment. We can only hope Ed is able to dig himself out of this hole.

    Thanks for your comment. This is definitely a low point for Ed.

    Chapter 9

    Thanks for the comment. Yes, Syl is a very dynamic character. An early version of this story was done with multiple POVs and Syl had a larger role, but an editor friend suggested doing it first person from Ed's POV, so this has lessened Syl's exposure.

    Thanks for the comment. Unfortunately, this won't be the only time E3 tries to get Ed employed at the Seventh Heaven Hotel. Yes, Syl continues to play the antagonist no matter how hard she tries to appear otherwise.

    Thanks for the comment. Funny thing about the mentally ill and officialdom, they always seem to demand "self-identification", but the mentally ill are the least likely to do so. Ed's knees are a secondary issue that have been hidden under his natural inabilities at anything athletic.
