To Stop a Halloween Thief
The boy's name is brady. Brady is a fourteen year old eighth grader who is passing out candy on Halloween. Alongside him is his best friend Cam. The two boys have been passing out candy for about an hour now and they were starting to get tired when they saw a couple of Juniors driving in a pickup truck snatching candy from the little kids on the street. Brady instantly recognized the three guys. The driver was Tommy,a starter on the high school football team. The other two were Tommy’s friends that pretty much did anything he said to do. There names were Colin and Dylan and same with Tommy they were also on the football team. Cam and I stood on my front porch wondering if we should just let them get away with it or

The only problems were that they were in a car and we had no clue what cul de sac they would hit next. So we left the bowl on the top step of the porch and ran to the garage to grab our bikes.

It didn't take long for the truck to roll out of the cul-de-sac on to the open road. Now noticing that Colin and Dylan had gone from the bed of the truck to the inside we decided it was our chance to take the candy back. To get closer to the truck we had to pedal even harder than we were before. We paddled right up behind the truck and grabbed the back with one hand and steered our bikes with the other. Curious to see how much candy they add Stolen I peared into the back of the truck and gaze down upon hundreds of candy bars. The amount of candy that I saw in the back of a truck looked like it was equivalent to 5 streets worth of candy. Now realizing the amount of candy we were dealing with I told Cam that I would have to crawl into the bed of the truck and hand him the candy from the inside. At first he disagreed with the plan but then when no other idea presented itself he gave in. With my hand still on the back of the truck I place my left foot onto the bumper and pulled myself onto the truck. I turned my head around in time to see my bike roll to the
