I'm sitting at my laptop studying photos of Booker's Place. They were taken by the Greenwood Police Department the morning after my grandfather was shot. My eye kept going back to something on the floor. It looks as though he had concrete flooring, but part of it looked strange.
I realized that it was wet. There's a long, wide path of moisture as if someone had tossed buckets of water on the floor. In the middle of the water stain is a thin, red circle. It looks like an outline from a blood puddle that someone tried to wash clean.
I feel like I might throw up.
