I didn't mean for the Jell-O and shrimp to splash into the pool. I didn't plan to be standing here in the hall with a girl at midnight. A lock clicked close by. A knob turned. It was too late to run. There was no place to hide. I wondered if Toby would let me ride his Big Wheel to school when Dad took my bike away.
