Institutionalized Addicts (A Long Short Story)

Note: I had so much fun writing this story. Special thanks to @OZionn and @Afadjato for giving me constructive advice on its drafts. Institutionalized Addicts Francis Jeyne’s death wasn’t a shock because it was unexpected; it was a shock because it was unwanted.
