Excerpt : John Marshall Law School

The day finally arrived.  I  was going to be attending John Marshall Law School in Atlanta.    This was one of the proudest moments of my father’s life.   He was absolutely thrilled, that his  only child, a daughter had been accepted.    This made my father very happy and he just thought  it was so poetic, that I would soon be a member of such an elite group as he was.  After all, my father Jackson Martin had been an alumni of John Marshall Law School and  maintained a perfect 4.0 gpa and had been one of the top in his class.   He always wanted  to keep his legacy going and now all eyes were on me.    I was excited in being able to finally start at John Marshall so that I could finally have my  freedom or so I thought. You see my father did not like the fact that I had chosen to live with my boyfriend Dante  Caryle.  He was furious and always had his reservations about our relationship.   To say that my father and I were at a crossroads is an understatement.  I for the life of me just did not und…

Prologue

Prologue:  “ Sadie why are you acting up”?  “Why are you trembling, please let  me help you”.     The room got pitched dark and Sadie felt the room begin to spin rapidly.   “ Stay away from me Dante”, “ “ or I swear I will kill you”.   “ You have  hurt me for the very last time”.   As she said this Dante tried to walk quietly towards her.    “ Please baby- Why don’t you let me call the doctor so he can help  you”? After a brief silence- Sadie grabs a gun.    “ Sadie  please put the gun down”, he said urgently.   “Please baby,  don’t do this”!   “ Give me the gun, okay, I promise you darlin, we can  get through this”, he said in a stern tone.  “ No Dante”, don’t try to make me forget all you have done to me”!  
 As Sadie cried out, her thoughts began to run away with her.     As she looked down,  at the 9 mm  gun she had in her hand, her nose began to bleed.   Then suddenly  her vision got very blurry.   She could hear her baby girl’s  cry and all of a sudden the  room began  to move  in different dire…

Confessions:  Intimate revelations about a person’s private life or occupation.
It was very early in the morning when Jackson boarded the red eye to Raleigh North  Carolina.  He was very anxious to get to the hospital to be with Lila and his daughter  Sadie.   As he sat on the plane, he began to recall the moment that Sadie told him  that she would be moving in with Dante.     “ Daddy I have some news”, she said excitedly.   “ Oh he said in a happy tone”.  Is this about Law School? “ Well not exactly”, she said nervously.   “Okay, what do you mean  by not exactly Sadie ? “  Well I am moving in with Dante”, she said in a high pitched tone. “ What, he gasped and then said,   “ you are moving in with that weasel  and  what about Law school”? “ Please Daddy understand”, “ I love Dante and  he feels the same”. “ Hunny, he is not right for you”, I can sense it.   “ Well I am sorry you feel that way”, “but I am still moving in with him”. He was so caught up in his own memories, that he did not notice , that…

Chapter 5 HIdden Truths

It was a Monday Morning that mid date in November.   Mr. Charles Mason, District  attorney for the city of Raleigh in the state of North Carolina was informed he would be  taking the case to court beginning November 15, 2010.   He was relieved to begin on  this case.   Since the murder investigation had begun in May, all of the case was not  processed and ready for trial until late September. Since the criminal investigation did  not fully wrap up until late August.  There were many factors that were involved in this  investigation.  However it was mostly due in part to the long psychiatric evaluations  done to Mrs. Sadie Martin Carlyle and the fact that Dante’s parents fought to make sure  the trial was not moved to Atlanta Georgia were Sadie was born and raised.   This was  a very hard time for the Carlyle’s.   They were shocked at all that had transpired since  their only son’s death.  They both felt that the supposed victim and their former daughter  in law was not being truthful and that…

Excerpt of Chapter 4 : Battered Mind

Chapter 4  Revisiting the past The blood was all over the rug, and the 9mm gun had been found at the crime scene  and after much investigating the forensic team came to the realization that the  deceased was shot multiple times.  However, the most important piece of the evidence  according to Detective Scalia was the small recorded tape that had been found in Dante  Carlyle’s belongings.  After much deliberating with the tape all night, she decided to  take it to her superiors to determine if the tape was legit.   In order, for her to get a  clearer perspective she decided to listen to it again.   As she was getting ready to listen to the crucial and potential evidence , her phone   began to ring.    “  Scalia here, she stated.  “ Yes is this Detective Nadia Scalia”?   said a man’s voice over  the phone.   “Yes I am her, how can I help you”?  She answered in a curious tone.    “ This is doctor Adam Frasier  at Raleigh General.   “ I just wanted to inform you that we  are running a psychiatric eval…
