s are after these little black boy
s. The two boys are are on their way to do some investigating, and they take a shortcut
through a mansion
. They go upstairs, intending to leave through the front door, when the older one whisper
s, "No, come back!"
I know he can't hear
anything, or see
anything, but he knows that something bad
is going to happen.
Shots ring out, and rays of light
shine through the bullet holes
, illuminating the swirling dust
right where the boys had been standing.
The middle brother doesn't listen and gets shot by the thugs. Blood spatters against the wall, and he slides down it to a sitting position. The two remaining brothers are terrified, and they run back and towards the other side of the house, but more thugs arrive, coming in from all sides.
I wake up with my heart pounding, and I can't go back to sleep. I lay there for about twenty minutes, and finally just get up.
