The rough and violent areas of K Street were no place a kid should be left alone, but for fifteen-year-old Micah Tate, it was home. It was never a fit for him, but he fought to survive in it as long as he could. He maneuvered through its courtyards and learned to live in it. When Micah's only options in life became to go prison for a long time or become the property of the state, he willingly submitted to a new life and direction.
Still reeling from the sudden passing of his wife, Mr. Rudolph Pfeiffer, a seventy-seven-year-old fearless, no-nonsense leader hesitantly takes in the teen. Micah was tough, but Mr. Pfeiffer was tougher. Micah was not afraid to stand up for himself nor speak his mind, but neither was Mr. Pfeiffer. When their toughness clashed, Mr. Pfeiffer never backed down, and his hardness prevailed over Micah every time. But when their roughness matched, it was the perfect element to build a solid bond between the two of them.
Micah moved away from K street, but it was Mr. Pfeiffer's guidance, patience, and lessons on unfairness, economic disadvantages, and relationships that taught Micah how to live beyond it.
Despite the infuriating meddling from Micah's past, Mr. Pfeiffer never gave up on him. Despite threats to Micah's future, Mr. Pfeiffer was a shield for him. And although Mr. Pfeiffer greatly missed and longed to be with his late wife of five decades, he focused on Micah and was proud to see him grow into the strong, resilient and intelligent young man he raised him to become.

I not only know what fear, pain, anxiety, hurt feel like, I also know what they look like. Despite the boisterous winds and rain and dark clouds I write. I write through my tears because I know that in the end that I will not only have the ability to relate but have the ability to explain the measures I took to get out of it.”
She adds, “I am not a storm chaser.
