Hello Everybody, I need you to help me with this word : aloose. I've been searching its meaning everywhere but I could not find it. It is on a Flannery O'connor's short story. This is the context: Here this fellow that calls himself The Misfit is aloose from the Federal Pen and headed toward Florida and you read here what it says he did to these people. Just you read it. I wouldn't take my children in any direction with a criminal like that aloose in it. I couldn't answer to my conscience if I did." Thanks for your help !
