Taking the High Ground
by Amy Alessio
Having a cop for an uncle was like having a Big Brother in the 1984 sense; he was always watching. Troy already called the house this morning to ask Mom if I’d written everything down for the police report. I knew if I didn't get something down soon he’d come over here to “help.” It was hard to know where to start. I never thought I would have to explain how I helped catch a murderer or how I almost got killed myself.
