Death Before Dawn, Part Three

What you will read below is a short story in process. Like a film, I've shot all the scenes and written most of the sections deliberately out of sequence. They will be conjoined later, once I have the material I need. Last month I wrote Parts One and Two. To follow is Part Three, but this will probably end up being placed later in the text.

You send it to a reader for feedback, you send it to a literary journal for possible publication, or you send it to a literary agent for possible representation. And then you wait.
