An old newspaper rode nomadic gusts of autumn wind through the narrow alley and collected near the boys. Mark, Bryan and Chad waited between these oppressive, blackened walls and fought to suppress the gnawing fear growing inside them. They leaned up against their car, making painfully strained attempts to look dangerous.
They hoped their juvenile posturing would scare off anyone who might decide to split open their heads with a steel pipe, rip out their teeth with a hacksaw, or any of the other terrible things they had heard might happen to kids who were stupid enough to come out here. In high school, they were the jocks, leaders of the championship football team. They were the strongest animals in that jungle.
