Newest Chapter: It's Leon's birthday, but instead of enjoying it, he's weighed down with a lot of questions. Would someone be willing to answer them?
“You were homeless??” Leon didn’t know.
“That’s why I had to do petty theft.” Aiden sighed. “Yeah, prison gave me food and a bed, but you’ll never know how it is until you’ve been there.” He shook his head. “You’ll never know. Trapped in a rat cage with guys who have nothing left to live for. Dudes with families they’ll never get to see again on the outside.”
“I was lucky enough not to have that, and I still wanted out. If I had to spend 25 years in there, I woulda lost my mind!”
“25 years?? For petty theft?” Leon couldn’t believe his ears.
“You might think I’m tryin’ to mess with you, and any other time you’d be right. But I want you to know that if you’re looking for hope, you won’t find much in prison. I don’t care if your friend’s in there for 5 or 50 years, he’s gonna come out changed. And that’s if he survives.”
