Introduction: When Roman answers an ad to work at ManGrowth Manor, a specialty hospital for men only, and a place that Roman has never heard of, he is unclear of his duties at the institution and even more confused about the mission of the hospital itself. After being given a brief tour of ManGrowth Manor, Roman is still uncertain about the job, but he decides to give it a chance. It doesn’t take long, however, for Roman to realize that there is something very odd about ManGrowth Manor and he wonders if the expectations of him are quite different than had originally been explained. Excerpt: Roman had never been this far north on the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and had never heard of this particular hospital. It was well hidden by massive trees and thick undergrowth. Roman parked his car in the employee lot and walked slowly toward the front entrance. “Man, this place is old,” he mumbled. The door made an eerie sound as Roman opened it. He walked down a long hallway until he came to a door that read, “Human Resources,” and walked inside. ******** “ManGrowth Manor, Roman, is a facility for men who have expressed feelings for other men the way they should be expressing feelings toward women. Some have openly confessed to these feelings, and others, well, unfortunately, others have actually been discovered with men in the way they should desire to be with women, and that is, in a sexual way. The men here at ManGrowth Manor are confused, Roman, but when they leave here they are prepared to fulfill their natural place in society, as real men.” The emphasis that Mr. Osio had placed on the word “real” disturbed Roman. Did the university know about this? Did they know that such a place as ManGrowth Manor existed today? This was not the 1950s. Shit, the 1950s were over sixty years ago. Time did pass up here in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan just as it did everywhere else, didn’t it? ******** “I’m Roman, a new orderly here.” The man opened his eyes, but continued to stare at the wall. “I’m sorry?” he asked. Roman repeated what he had just said. Chuck had to be sure before he looked at Roman. “Roman, it’s me, Chase,” the man said. “Chase?” Roman hurried to the man’s bed. “Be careful, Roman. They are watching.” Roman stood up and took a couple of steps back.
