Two boys walk home one late day. They were afterschool kids, and their parents could not pick them up. They were getting older now and ready to go home on their own as opposed to their parents picking them up, they are coming into their own, ready to venture out into the wild, ready for an adventure as it would seem. Mike and Steven barely knew each other until now.
Mike always thought there was something strange about Steven. Steven used to wear a lot of black and had scary eyes. Sometimes Steve used to wear contact lenses which made them look even more scary and fierce. Mike was a bit more of a jock and was on the track team. They were both starting to walk home and Mike was looking at what he considered to be the freak and asked him why he just does not try to act more normal? Steven turned and looked at Mike like he was the devil and Mike got ready for fight or flight. Steven just gazed at him and said your people don’t understand people like me. They saw the last rays of the sunlight hugging the horizon as they seemingly walked towards the sun as if their destiny lied beyond the horizon.
