"Yes Brady what's up?
"So I saw you havin some fun with that girl from records at the Christmas party."
"Well aren't u just a trained observer."
"I don't like the way you said that Richards."
"Well Brady you're a uniform so it doesn't really matter what you like or dislike now does it?" He knew that would burn Brady's ass. That made him smile. Watching Brady walk away was a great pleasure.
Keith was pulled out of his dream and back to the present. The house was burning and he could smell the smoke. He had to get out. Turning to the window he saw John standing outside the window with worry creased on his face. He held his hand to Keith. Keith's heart melted seeing his worry and his love. When he took John's hand he smiled and was helped out the window.
John caught Keith as he dropped to the ground from the slightly elevated bathroom window. He grabbed Keith's hand and pulled him towards his neighbor to the north. They had to get away. Far away! Soon they were over the fence and in his yard. John was plotting out his neighborhood in his head and searching for hidden spots. When he felt a sharp pain in his back he fell forward onto his face.
