Tom Herold has demonstrated how much impact seven paragraphs can have when constructed by a good story teller. This is a wonderful, cautionary tale about the decisions we make in life. I had friends that "flirted" with heroin and some of them became addicts, subsequently robbed to support their habits and went to jail. My roommate mate was a junkie for a year and wound up working at a local donut shop before going to Berkeley College of music. You have done a brilliant job on this short story and it reminded me of friend from my past.
