    Covered by a Cloud Covered by a cloud Shrouding my periphery Blocking you from seeing me Impeding me from having you. Covered by a cloud An omnipresent fog Drifting around my horizon Blurring my vision, your vision. Covered by a cloud That seems to like to follow me Hover about my p...

    Part 1 “You! You over there; come here!” I walked over to Coach Trent, the gym teacher, and really hoped he wasn’t going to say what I knew he was going to say. “What’s your name, boy?” “Danny.” “Danny. How old are you?” ...
