I remembered Monreal Dorb long before he changed his name to Monty Dorn, though 40 years had passed.  Skinny, pale, cursed with an arrowhead nose, he’d spent hours in a gym and changed his face, but there was one thing he couldn’t change. 

I shuddered at Monty’s dark brown eyes staring into me as Mr. Smith screamed…and his wicked smile!  I’d witnessed Monty doing something to our teacher’s chair pad, and dared not tell the principal about it.

So many people were shocked that debonair Dr. Dorn was arrested for child sex trafficking and murder. 

Everyone but me.
