The Prodigy is a multi-part story, based on events taking place in central Kansas earlier this spring. This is Part Six, the conclusion. Earlier releases can be read at the following links: Part One, Part Two, Part Three, Part Four, Part Five. When I arrived at the Pearson home in St. Clere on late Saturday afternoon, after an interminable flight and an even longer drive in the rental car, during which time I couldn't reach anyone that mattered, I found Chris Pearson by himself, and in a state of agitation that can only be achieved by those whose energy levels exist in the stratosphere even at the calmest moments. Now, after I walked through the open front door, he was pacing at a feverish pace while clapping one hand urgently against his thigh.
Fantastic story Shane. Really enjoyed it.
