(Excerpt #3)

Recently, I published two excerpts from my work in progress, the novel The Ultimate Patient. I received some very helpful feedback, and decided to post a few more selections. This one takes place in the early fifties in communist Romania. Two teenage boys, Puiu and Tibby are caught bringing a gun to school. They want their friend, Boci to use it to intimidate a bully who attacked them the previous day. Puiu is a nephew of Kostea, the central male protagonist in the novel.
