Chapter 14- Glory


"FROSTY held a butane torch to the bowl. Our eyes locked as I drew breath and held the smoke in my mouth. Time came to a stop at the boarding gate. The conductor smiled. He punched the ticket. I stood on the brink of the ride, eyes wide. As the train left the station I remember thinking, Will this be the beginning or the end?"

I took the first step. I inhaled.

I only remember fragments.
“....something brand new...”

“...designer drug...”

FROSTY lowered the torch.

“How you feeling man?”

Camilla's arms embraced me.

“Why don’t you lay back and enjoy the ride.”

I lay back.

“Why don’t you close your eyes man. It’s the best part of the trip.”

I closed my eyes.

"Just go with it man.”
