I remembered my knife, and sure enough, it was still firmly planted in my hand. My hand opened up and the knife fell with a tink. “Look man, it’s cool. What’s your name?” He put the gun on his back, and his knapsack over the gun. “Grant, the names Grant. Yours?” “Mason, Mason Reyes. How old are you?”…
