Mercy Not Sacrifice by Dan Parks - Chapter 16
Johnnie drops Jesús off in Carson City and continues on through Nevada and into California. He passes through the small towns that mark the end of Rt. 50 into Sacramento and onto I-80 to the Bay Area. Crossing the two bridges into the city, the time that his parents spent in San Francisco is recalled.
A conversation with Dr. Heiler is remembered when he asked, “What is it you’re holding on to?”
It’s at Bay Area Paper that Johnnie leaves the truck behind with one last thing to do.
