Right then in my mind I heard a voice quoting a scripture Dad had taught me. ” This rattled me to my core and I sadly looked out the window from the ninth ﬂoor at the Hollywood Hills and saw my dreams ﬂoat away with the soft-moving, billowy, distant clouds. ” “Well, I’m sorry to hear that, Danny,” he simply replied.

He was a nice man and I was surprised by how decent he was with me, which made me feel guilty because I had slept with his daughter. He just wanted to know how she was doing and that she was all right. He was a concerned dad and obviously loved his daughter. After all she was still his little angel. Shelly’s dad made me take some money and also gave me the medicine she needed. I had to tell Shelly of our meeting and I would try to convince her that we both should go and visit her folks soon, just to let them know everything was okay.
