More from Melissa R. Mendelson:
It was raining hard on a Tuesday night. The courtroom was packed and livid. Tensions denied the knife, and security was tight. The man of the hour was dressed in orange and chains, and each chain rang with the death of his victims. No regret shined in his eyes. Only his lawyer paled like a ghost, knowing what the verdict would be, and those in attendance hoped for the worst. I sat in the corner, hoping to be ignored, but when he looked at me, they knew that I was there. They knew that I was there for him, and right now, he was safe in their custody. But I wasn’t. I had to go outside alone on this rainy night, hounded by a bloodthirsty mob.
