The bar where the story takes place is in my hometown. Elon, NC. It's called Sandy's Italian Grill. I sure hope I've got an original monster here. I mean, the marionette is only half the monster, you know? I also wanted to try to scrape the surface of PTSD and how most people don't understand the disorder, with how the news and movies and television have distorted what it really is, making it something to fear and thus ignore. Also, I wanted one of my characters to be kind of Aspergers-y, and I think I nailed that one. I really hope you guys like my story.
