“Bernard, here comes that kid walking back here again,” Albert remarked.
“You stay in the van and I will grab him,” Bernard said.
Alex walked with his head down, feeling disappointed that his friend, Johnny, forgot to meet him so they could walk to the store together.
When he looked up there was a man running toward him.
He remembered his mom telling him to never walk behind the stores, especially if he was alone and he knew he was in trouble.
He heard Johnny shouting and turned in time to see Johnny’s dog, Bullet race toward the man.
Bullet knocked the man down and stood over him showing his teeth and growling.
The man in the van drove away quickly, and Alex ran to one of the stores and banged on the door seeking help.
