The Murderer Who Wasn't a Monster Ch 1

My name is Darryl McMillan.
  
My number in prison is 66667778. And I'm a murderer.
   
People who think I'm a monster know nothing. They don't know the story. And they just want to judge and moralize. They have nothing to offer me, and I have nothing to offer in return.  
   
They took away my freedom. I live with people who don't deserve to live, and I have no friends. I never did in school or anywhere really.    
   
I've been taught to be okay with silence.  
   
It keeps me away from the drunkards and the idiots.  
   
I'm Darryl, and I'm a murderer.  
   
And I have no regrets.

Author's Note
All I will say is that murderer does not equal monster, and you'll see why as this story unfolds.
