The Kneeling Position

by Erik Gernand

No reservations necessary. $5 suggested donation at the door.

A man confronts his high school bully twenty years later when he learns that the bully is running for Congress. A confrontation at the candidate's campaign headquarters exposes a dark secret they've kept since childhood that threatens to derail the former bully's entire campaign. Is reconciliation still possible, or is forgiveness too late for both men?
