He raised the short piece of pipe over his head and rushed me. When he got within range he swung it. The guy aimed it at my head. A mistake. He could have broken my arm. Instead he missed because I ducked and kicked him in the crotch as hard as I could. It was one of the few times when I wished I was wearing hard-soled shoes instead of my usual red Keds. The ones with the soft white soles. Still, he went down in a heap. He screamed in agony and clutched his groin. Tears came and I could see the flash of silver in his back molars. I hoped his yells didn’t disturb the neighbors. He’d showed up while I was scoping out the back yard of a former lake cottage right across the road from White Bear Lake.
